Production, Circulation, and Drainage
This two-page textbook spread is the result of a collaborative effort of three students in the Biomedical Communications neuroanatomy course. For this group project, a pre-determined style guide and colour palette were followed, and a studio environment workflow was emulated, with each team member taking charge of a different stage of execution. My role was the conceptualization and design of the illustrations and layout and the composition of text. Illustrations were then vectorized by Kim and rendered by Felix. The goal of this spread is to communicate key anatomical and physiological aspects of cerebrospinal fluid at molecular, tissue, and system scales.

Dental Pathology Atlas
Jawbone3D is an interactive augmented reality (AR) application designed and built as a five-week collaborative project with Alex Young, Yue (Shawn) Liu, and Bernadette MacNeil. This educational app helps dental students understand and identify oral pathologies that are rare or hard to see in the oral cavity, and which are not frequently encountered during clinical learning. Through recognition of 3D printed anatomical models, Jawbone3D allows students to interact with virtual dental models of the mandible or maxilla, in which they can visualize a range of pathological conditions and relevant anatomical features. The app also provides a Pathology Atlas to supplement students’ learning with information on the aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of the pathologies they explore in AR.
