Online Content Developer and Animator
I became an animator with the Department of Physiology at the University of Melbourne in 2013. Prior to that, I have had some experience in bioinformatics, metabolomics, biochemistry and biotechnology.
My animation style tends toward more simple diagrammatic objects, tailored to rapid development and deployment for use as teaching resources, and some examples are linked below. See my post on using animation in teaching to see how we are using these.
This animation shows the result of multiple stimulatory signals being triggered in a neuron, with the result that an action potential is produced; this could create a contraction in a muscle, for example.
A video showing how multiple action potentials add up, triggering the release of enough calcium into the muscle cell to allow for a prolonged contraction of the muscle fibre.
