I design figures, infographics, posters, animations, graphical abstracts and other graphics for scientific journals, social media, conferences & popular science publications

Graphical abstracts

Social media graphical abstract for Adams and colleagues, 2020. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology. Abstract describes that grit in the diet of moles does not obscure the dietary signal of dental microwear.

Adams et al., 2020

Graphical abstract for social media

Journal graphical abstract for Adams and colleagues, 2020. PCA describes, from left to right, increasing proportion of hard prey in diet and rougher microwear texture. The conclusion of the paper is that microwear texture in moles reveals true dietary signal, and is not obscured by grit.

Infographic for social media

Social media graphical abstract for Morales Garcia and colleagues, 2019. Journal of the Royal Society Interface. It describes the use of simple 3D models of relatively flat jaws as a good alternative for tomography-based models for their use in Finite Element Analysis using early Jurassic mammals, Morganucodon and Kuehneotherium, as case studies.

Conference posters

Conference poster at Progressive Palaeontology 2018, Manchester. 2D extruded finite element analysis: a novel biomechanical technique in the study of early mammals. It describes how the use of simple 3D models built from photographs for Finite Element Analysis produces similar results to those built from tomographic data. This technique is good for building relative simple morphologies, such as the mammalian jaw.
