LATEST NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS
Thursday 17th October 2019
Attending the Research Degrees Open Evening at London College of Communication, to give a brief presentation about my own PhD experience and chat with potential candidates.
Monday 28th October 2019
Meeting with Dr Mattia Veronese, of the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences at King’s College London, to discuss our upcoming workshops on graphic design for PhD students. See the website Neuroscience and Graphic Design for more details.
Wednesday 6th November 2019
Presenting my research to the students of the Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma Design for Visual Communication courses at London College of Communication. This will be part of their ‘Professional and Academic Context’ unit, that explores the relationship between academic research and professional practice. I will be representing academia and showing how graphic design practice formed a large part of my own research.
PAST NEWS / EVENTS
Monday 30th September 2019
My PhD thesis, ‘Visual Elements and Visual Paradigms: Re-thinking scientific conceptual figures through graphic design’, has been submitted for examination. For more information regarding my research see this post, and this writing will be updated in the near future.
Wednesday 1st May 2019
As a continuation of my collaboration with the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences, we have been awarded funding by the Health Sciences Doctoral Training Centre at KCL to create and run workshops for PhD students on producing scientific conceptual figures. The workshops will take place either later in 2019 or, more likely, early in 2020. More details can be found on the News feed of the collaboration website.
April – September 2019
Illustration / information design work for Dr Simone Reinders, of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London. I created the visual elements, both anatomical images and statistical bar charts, to build up a conceptual figure that can be used in a journal paper and associated presentations. Creating the figure was an exercise in fitting a large amount of information into a limited space …
February – April 2019
In February 2019 I started graphic design / illustration work for Anoushka Leslie, Project and Scientific Co-ordinator at the Department for Neuroimaging Sciences at King’s College London. The work is part of the SHARE & PREVIEW project, and creates an illustrated communications resource presenting key results from a recent research study and explaining key scientific concepts relevant to that study.
On Saturday 23rd March 2019, I attended a SHARE & PREVIEW workshop at King’s College, Denmark Hill, where neuroscience researchers presented their new and upcoming research to fellow researchers, health professionals and service users. During the workshop we received feedback on the information documents produced so far. These documents cover the subjects of executive function, brain ageing, white matter pathways and DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) scans. Based on the feedback the documents have been revised and updated and in due course they should be made available on the Maudsley BRC website.
A full blog post will be written once the documents are completely finalised and will include links to the full documents when they become generally available. Images have been added to two galleries on the Graphic Work page. Select images have also been added to the online library for the Centre of Neuroimaging Sciences and can be accessed via the Neuroscience & Graphic Design website.
