to science communication.”
I have been drawing digital illustrations on life science topics for more than 15 years. I began to illustrate when I was a medical student and needed images for my own dissertation. As the years went by, my illustration skills continuously improved, and as they did, more and more research colleagues asked me to create images for their professional work. Eventually, I decided to make scientific illustration my main occupation.
In German-speaking countries, I’m currently the only microbiologist and medical researcher who works as a professional illustrator.
Researchers and doctors can talk to me using their scientific and medical terminology.
Authors that work outside the field of medicine can rely on the medical accuracy of my work.
For science communication I translate the complex concepts of modern medicine into understandable texts and graphics.
