Why University of Wisconsin and the Coon lab?

Unlike the other science labs I have known, Coon lab members are more aware of the power and significance of visualization when it comes to delivering ideas and data. Working with them, I felt that each member thinks from the perspective of the audience who will be looking at their research, not solely from one’s own perspective. This is why I chose Coonlab as my very first time to collaborate with “real scientists” and where my work can be beneficial for the community.

“There is power and significance of visualization when it comes to delivering ideas and data.”

Currently Working On

Since the research being conducted in Cooblab has a great impact on the practical medicine and education fields, they are trying to reach out to the people who have less or no scientific background. I am working on transforming their innovative research ideas into easier and more appealing forms by incorporating my previous and current learning in design and education.
