Featured Creature

I love learning fun animal facts and about the research happening around them! To put my graphic design and science communication skills to the test, I designed and created a monthly flyer series called "Featured Creature" about cool animals and even cooler researchers and conservationists. I will feature animals of all sorts (invertebrates, vertebrates, marine, terrestrial, etc.) and diverse graduate student researchers. Click on any animal below to learn more!
