Hi! My name's Eleanor Lutz and I write this blog. I'm a PhD candidate at the University of Washington studying biology. I work in Jeff Riffell's research lab studying how mosquitos learn and remember new experiences. I spend my free time cooking, reading, playing computer games, and dabbling in Python. Someday I want to learn woodworking, build my own mini greenhouse, and visit Iceland. You can find my CV here if you're interested in my work information.
How I Make Infographics
I make most of my infographics and charts in Photoshop and Illustrator. Here's a tutorial I made about making animated infographics. I try to be really transparent about my sources, and most of the infographics are based on reputable scientific sources like textbooks and peer-reviewed research papers. The website is a responsive Jekyll theme built from scratch and hosted on Github Pages.
