Science Communication Through Art: Drawing Inspiration from the Sea
Tuesday, May 14 12:30pm – 1:30pm 4500 Hubbs Hall, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Adi Khen is a 4th-year PhD student in Dr. Jennifer Smith’s lab at SIO. She is interested in coral reef ecology and she studies how benthic communities are responding to global climate change and associated thermal stress events, primarily using image analysis. However, in the past several years, Adi has also developed a strong passion for scientific illustration. She is a self-taught digital illustrator, with many of her drawings now published in journals, as figures or conceptual diagrams, or as logos for different organizations worldwide; as well as in professional talks, posters, and other educational or outreach products. Adi believes that science and art are interconnected and she plans to continue to integrate the two throughout her career. In this talk, she will share insights from her journey so far and express the importance of trying to communicate science more effectively through art.
