This image represents my attempt to illustrate a striking pattern in the system I study: crossbills (Loxia).
Globally, and in the Americas specifically, there is a huge discrepancy between overall and local (sympatric) diversity in the two crossbill clades (the ‘red’ and ‘white-winged’ clades).

My intention with this was to make a fun poster style image (with minimal text) that explains one of the challenges that migrating ungulates face.
I wanted to create a crowded feeling so the viewer could see that the animals are having to navigate through many types of human development. I knew this could stir up emotions/be seen as controversial so I made the animals look fun and happy and avoided making the human development portions seem scary, overpowering, or menacing.

For this design, I intended to display a key research question of my master’s degree in a simplified sketch for the general public.
I often have difficulty explaining my research to those outside of the science field and breaking it down for anyone to understand. I hoped a few sketches could more easily explain the basis of my research in order to engage those outside of academia and open up the conversation for further discussion.

This image is an early draft representing my research trying to understand how landscape features might influence the survival of sharp-tailed grouse in south-central Wyoming.

Collaboration between researchers and scientists across different type of visualization platforms is essential for increasing the effectiveness of scientific workflow to understand and discover novel pieces of information.
However, effective collaboration for data visualization across different geographical location is still a challenging problem. Researchers are limited with the availability of the display/interactive systems, using multiple types of visualization while being in different geographical locations.
