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.

In October of 2018, I was asked to interview for a position: Professor of Conservation, Sustainability, & GIS for a university in Virginia. I am only halfway through my PhD; under the best circumstances, I can hope to submit two or three chapters of my dissertation in the next calendar year. Defending one’s doctorate and completing a postdoc (or two) is all-but mandatory for faculty positions these days, even non-tenure track teaching professorships…so this position was assuredly out of my reach.
Because I had such negligible chances of succeeding, I threw caution to the wind and decided to give the teaching lecture that I wish I’d received as an undergraduate, and that I’d always wanted to give as a graduate student.

This is the most recent iteration of a flow schematic that I have been working on progressively for each week of this semester. My intentions is to make a visual that articulates well the entire scope of my research
I am a second year Master’s student working in Dr. Brian Cherrington’s Reproductive Endocrinology lab at the University of Wyoming. My project involves studying the effect that estrogen has on the lactation process and why at the molecular level estrogen seems to play a role in breast cancer development.
