More Work with NASA out this week!

March 8, 2019

 Big week in visual science communication output this week!

First, I am so happy to share my master's thesis, after 5 years, has finally been published! And I contributed my illustrative chops to designing the figures for this article! I am so proud and happy that this is finally out there, and my 2 years of hard work with the NASA Pavilion Lake Research Project is finally published! Big smiles here!

You can read the article here: Spatial distribution and preservation of carbon isotope biosignatures in freshwater microbialite carbonate.

ALSO, I was commissioned to create visuals for the NASA BASALT research program, helping to illustrate the communication architecture for analog Mars communication missions. What an amazing opportunity! I am so proud of these illos - they're fun, colourful, and more engaging to read while still maintaining the integrity of the scientific value and significance of BASALT's work. The science journal ''Astrobiology'' published a special issue on the BASALT research program, and I am so happy to have contributed illustrations to two papers!
