Making Science Beautiful: Technical Illustration

I worked with principal investigators at Missouri University of Science & Technology on multi-million dollar grant proposals, creating infographics and technical illustrations that highlighted and clarified their research. From aerospace engineering, to materials chemistry, to ethics of new technologies—I visualized complex faculty research.  

The below illustrations were created for NASA instrumentation proposals, enhancing lunar mission sensors for both astronaut suits and lunar colonies.

National Science Foundation 

The following design and illustration work was created for faculty submitting to the US government's NSF Research Traineeship Program. I worked to visually clarify data, summarize broad themes, and increase the proposal's persuasive value with clean, beautiful, and informative graphic design.

Royal Society of Chemistry 

An illustration I created for the cover of the Royal Society of Chemistry's journal. Working closely with research faculty at Missouri S&T, I created this digital illustration from scratch, abstracting complex research on cancer-destroying origami DNA structures.
