Evo Devo Art Interview for the Node

I was introduced to many of the evolutionary and developmental biology (evo-devo) themes featured in my work while studying biology at Yale, and while working in Dr. Antónia Monteiro’s lab. When the Node asked me to write about how I go about scientific outreach, I thought a dialogue with Dr. Monteiro would be the perfect way to delve into the process of bringing biological ideas to a broad audience. Many thanks to Dr. Antónia Monteiro, Associate Professor, Yale-NUS-College and Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore. The interview can be found here
