Working closely with the Innovative Genomics Institute, I designed and produced an app that uses augmented reality to visualize CRISPR proteins and systems for scientists, students, and educators.
Eterna is a citizen science game that recruits players to design RNA molecules by solving puzzles. These designs are then synthesized in the lab and used for biomedical research.
I’ve produced the key art for the Arab Film Festival for many years. This piece explored the relationship between the objective gaze of the camera and the layered, subjective reality of the world it attempts to capture. Several films of the festival year were from North African countries, so the traditional patterned tiles of the region formed the visual basis of the design.
Researchers at UCSF are paving the way in the new field of genome surgery, using CRISPR gene editing to treat disease. I produced this short documentary featuring Jim Johnsen, who has a condition called Best disease that is caused by a single gene mutation, along with Jennifer Doudna and Bruce Conklin, two of the leading figures in CRISPR research, to convey the promise of this approach.
I led the production of Making Medicine, an in-depth view of medicine development at Genentech which traces the path of a molecule from creation in the lab to regulatory approval. The project was honored by the Webby Awards in the Science and Best Use of Video categories.
I collaborated with filmmakers and animators to produce this series for Genentech’s YouTube channel. The first piece, How to Get Into the Brain, was a finalist in the Platinum PR Awards Best Video category, and won a company award for innovation in science communication.
A collection of prose poems, from parables to family stories. This piece was included in the premiere collection from the Electronic Literature Organization.
