In addition to creating images and infographics for both general and professional audiences, I consult with scientists and organizations on crafting their visual message. I have worked for the Smithsonian, National Geographic Magazine, the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, Wired.com, and many researchers at academic institutions worldwide. My work has appeared on the covers of Cell, Nature Biomedical Engineering, Nature Chemical Biology, Advanced Healthcare Materials, Advanced Materials, and Theranostics. Notable projects include: Portrait of a Denisovan Girl, Gene ORGANizer, The Book of Why by Judea Pearl and Dana Mackenzie, Rebooting AI by Ernest Davis and Gary Marcus. MHarel

Really excited to see my #coverart on the September issue of Nature Chemical Biology! With some Pac-Man inspiration :) Congratulations to Anupama Lakshmanan et al! Click through to see a zoom in, and. @Caltech also helped produce an animated version.
Acoustic #biosensors based on genetically encoded air-filled protein nanostructures known as gas vesicles, produce ultrasound signals in response to the action of specific proteases, which allows the activity of these enzymes to be imaged non-invasively inside the body. #sciart #scienceart

Chukar partridge, national bird of Iraq and Pakistan. I completed this piece recently for the @lazoo. But I haven’t been on grounds for a few weeks due to Covid19. I really hope I’ll be able to visit these guys again soon in the aviary. They’re very shy but remind me of angry birds 🐦 #chukar #sciart #birdart
