  • Introduction  top

    I have been interested in science and visual arts since I was a child. After completing my bachelor's degree in microbiology and immunology at UBC, I worked in the video game industry as a designer briefly. During my time as a designer, I had the opportunity to see some of the latest design principles and technology used for the entertainment business. However, it occurred to me that many of the cutting-edge concepts and designs used in the video game industry are not broadly applied in the field of scientific education. By utilizing these concepts, I believe it is possible to create exciting scientific education material that can attract public's attention while delivering the essential information efficiently. For this reason, I refocused my career path to biomedical visualization. During my time as a microbiology student and game designer, I've met many brilliant and inspiring individuals who make me a firm believer in collaborations. Therefore, to the visitors of this website, it does not matter if you are an educator, a researcher, an artist or experts in any other field. As long as you have a project in mind where I can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact me, and let's collaborate!
