Laura is a student in our MFA in Interactive Media. She came to the program with experience in coding and mapping, and her skills have only gotten better in this first year with us. Silent Forest can give you an idea of what she's capable of: From interactive data visualizations to pictorial illustrations, like the ones you'll see in the section about bird species. She can also model and animate in 3D, but she didn't show off here.
(Full disclosure: I'm listed as a “special advisor in data visualization” but my participation was limited to giving some feedback on the graphics.)
