I am an artist, a designer, a researcher and an educator-I am Almost Scientific. Using digital and physical tools I explore the intersections and boundaries between art and science. I communicate scientific phenomena aesthetically and employ scientific methods to generate art. I’m interested in the relationship between the abstract and the concrete, and the consequences of moving phenomena between these two worlds.

My early years were spent taking apart machines and cutting colored paper into little bits. I graduated from New York University with a BS in Neuroscience, and became a pre-doctoral researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health. I completed my Ph.D in Neurobiology at Stanford University, where I studied how monkey neurons make economic decisions. Since then I’ve been a postdoctoral fellowship at The Exploratorium. Today I work as an independent designer and fabricator, and design research consultant.
