Outreach and Illustration


I am greatly interested in illustration, design, and visual communication. Some samples of outreach, scientific, and extracurricular materials I’ve designed and/or illustrated are shown below. Many of these materials were created for initiatives spearheaded by the Yale Science Diplomats, in which I was active from 2012-2016.
