Having an extensive research background in biomedical science at the University of Melbourne and a longstanding interest in the visual arts, I work as a postdoctoral research fellow and lead pre-rendered content developer in the 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab. I specialise in developing creative solutions to complex visualisations in addition to carrying out roles in the lab’s interactive VR content development.
