About me

I have been working as a freelance illustrator/cartoonist since completing my PhD in Neuroscience in 2013. I specialize in science visualization, producing info-comics and illustrations. I am the author of Neurocomic, a graphic novel supported by the Wellcome Trust and published by Nobrow. I have also collaborated with high-profile scientific institutions such as UCL, Harvard, the Columbia School of Journalism and Rice University. Finally I am very passionate about education and public engagement and I am often invited to give lectures and host science communication events.
