I'm Stuart, the creator of Biocinematics and an "educational science visualizer". More simply put, I use digital animation tools to create media that communicates science concepts.
The Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (MScBMC) (2011-2013) I received from the University of Toronto provided me with the artistic, design, and technical skills required to create meaningful and informative images and videos. My experience as a bioinformatician (2008-2011) allows me to work with and understand biological data, and helps me efficiently use complex software. And my Bachelor of Science in molecular biology (2004-2008) is the foundation for my keen interest in how the very small pieces of us work together.
As a research associate (2013-2016), I collaborated on visualization research with Jodie Jenkinson, BA, MScBMC, PhD at the University of Toronto Mississauga, and with Gaël McGill, PhD at Harvard Medical School. You can find our research at ScienceVis.org.
Currently I work full-time as a 3D Biomedical Technical Artist at AXS Studio Inc. where I help produce biomedical animations and illustrations. I also develop tools and pipelines at the studio.
My interdisciplinary interests extend to many other areas as well, and you will find photography, writing, and music featured in various areas on this site. Please feel free to contact me through the form below, or by email: stuart [at] biocinematics [dot] com.
