HAND-DRAWN ILLUSTRATIONS:

Asides from planetary science, I am an accomplished illustrator, specializing in pen and pencil scientific illustrations. Below are several examples of pieces that I created either for specific research projects, or just for fun.

CONFERENCE SKETCHES:

My notes are colorful. I live-sketch conference proceedings for both my own edification, and for sharing new results with the public on social media. You can find my conference sketches on Twitter. I usually attend DPS, AGU, and LPSC. Below are some examples.

NATURE GEOSCIENCE SKETCH-UP:

I write and illustrate a recurring "News & Views"-style series for Nature Geoscience entitled "Sketch-Up". Sketch-Ups summarize exciting new results published in Nature Geoscience, using my characteristic sketching style. Below are some examples:

DATA VISUALIZATION:

I believe that data visualization is a fundamental component of science and science communication. I strive to create both beautiful and informative graphics for all of the research projects I work on. Below are some examples.
