Science & Art

Welcome to the outreaching part of my work done in collaboration with Jill Pelto, a young Artist and Scientist from Portland, Maine. Like Jill I like finding new ways to communicate science to a broader audience and especially through art. In these pieces of art Jill used scientific data from our research to increase awareness about what we do and to explain it in a simpler fashion. Jill depicted what we do in the fieldwork and how we use ancient and modern DNA data to understand plant response to climate change.

Nature is fascinating and beautiful, and I hope you will  enjoy looking at these wonderful pieces of art!
