I created this figure to depict how the land in India has been changing over the last several decades.
My study is focused around human-elephant conflicts in India which has tied in with the changing land use of the area. To understand the issues surrounding human-elephant conflicts it is important for researchers and the public to understand the landscape of the region and how it has changed over time.

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.

This is the first image I created for this class, and it remains my favorite. I wanted to make a stand alone image that people could read and understand, without a science background and without me standing next to them and defining every single image and term.

I don't usually listen to rap. But when I do, it's Baba Brinkman.
When having a Bachelor's degree isn't enough, Baba Brinkman went the extra mile for a Master's -- in literature of all subjects! Strange hobby for a guy who spent his years planting trees and studying primatology and human evolutions. And then he went and married a neuroscientist!
For the last decade Baba Brinkman has map a living rapping about all sorts of subject from Canterbury Tales, evolution, climate change, Bayesian statistics, religion, DNA, and psychology.
You know, it seems strange for me to tell you about a showman. So I'm just going let Baba Brinkman about genetics and heterozygote advantages:
