Science & Art

Welcome to the outreaching part of my work, done in collaboration with Jill Pelto, a brilliant artist and scientist from Portland, Maine. As Jill and I share a passion for finding finding new ways to communicate science to a broader audience, we decided to use art as a tool to explain our research and increase awareness.

In these peices of art,  Jill used scientific data from our research to illustrate what we do in the fieldwork and how we use ancient and modern DNA data to understand how plants respond to climate change. 

Nature is fascinating and beautiful and these works of art are a testament to that.
