I am a neuroscientist who envisions cells through art. I have always been interested in art, and started painting at a young age. I am also very interested in science, and pursued the healthcare industry as a physical therapist and followed that with a PhD in Anatomy. Anatomy is the study of the body including cells. My day job is as a Professor at the University of Iowa in The Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. I run an neuroscience research laboratory focusing on understanding the underlying mechanisms of pain and improving treatment for those with chronic pain. I also teach the next generation of physical therapists to treat people with pain and the next generation of scientists to study the mechanisms and treatment for pain. In my spare time, I paint cells. My medium of choice is acrylic pain, but i have experimented with other mediums as well.
