About the cartoonist

I’m a cartoonist and scientist. I work on the genetics of complex human diseases, specifically on preterm birth and preeclampsia. I’m assistant professor of pediatrics at Alpert Medical School of Brown University and research scientist at Women & Infants Hospital. “In my spare time“, I draw cartoons at Biocomicals.
My comics were published in Northeastern University Newspaper, PLoS Blogs, featured regularly in Nature Blogs. I was the winner of PLoS Computational Biology 2011 T-shirt competition and the design was debuted at ISMB/ECCB Vienna 2011 in July.
Brown Medicine Magazine interviewed with me on Biocomicals for the Fall 2017 issue, you can read the piece from this link .
One of the Biocomicals cartoon made the cover of Trends in Genetics for the November issue of 2017. You can click here to see the cover.
I hope you enjoy Biocomicals, and if you like then spread the word.
