Why is MS an important topic of research in Canada? I am a big fan of infographics, especially when they cross into the realm of scientific visualization. You may or may not know (this, of course, would depend on your chronological preference for reading blog entries) that my MRP animation is about a...

Forests of axons… and a lab mouse? These past few months I’ve been learning to animate in Maya. It has been a process of overcoming a constant stream of technological roadblocks! But the euphoria of conquering each one makes for an enjoyable process nonetheless. Here are some of the scenes...

Storyboard. Animated. I spent the last several weeks on a rough 2D animation, using mostly my original storyboard images but adding a bit more colour and tone. This was a challenging step, but it helped establish the pacing of the final animation and brought the whole concept to life a little more. Next...

Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, I completed an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at the University of British Columbia. Through Kinesiology, I was able to develop my lifelong interest in Human Biology and Health Science, eventually focusing on the nervous system and the fascinating ways in which movement is controlled and coordinated in the human body. Although my elective foray into first year studio art during the final part of my undergraduate degree was simply meant to rekindle an old passion for visual arts, it ended up putting me on a new career path. I was fortunate enough to find out about the field of Biomedical Communications around this time and I spent two invaluable years in the continuing education program at Emily Carr University honing my visual art skills and working on my application.I have always been captivated by the details of the natural world, and I am amazed by how much enjoyment there is in sharing this information with other people. I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Biomedical Communications program at U of T, and I look forward to a career that will continually challenge me to find the most effective ways to connect with others.
