Hi, I'm Iris 👋
I specialize in helping biologists visually explain their science. For the past eight years, I have collaborated with scientists to distill their message into a variety of forms - scientific figures, summary diagrams, cover illustrations, patient education information, and more. In doing so, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with a diverse group of content experts, editors, writers, and other illustrators.
I also love illustrating plants and animals around me, and am a huge fan of fun facts. Fun fact: I live in a 13-person community house in SF as a living experiment in intentional community building.
I received my B.S. in Biology from MIT
, along with a concentration in Arts, Culture, and Technology. Since then, I have worked as both a researcher and an artist at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT
, and at Benchling
