“Politics on Your Newsfeed,” 2016

The 2016 presidential election brought a rise in political discussion on social media, spurring a new form of political news acquisition.

This phenomenon peaked my interest even before the fallout of this social media reliance took hold of the public conversation. I researched the generational differences when it came to political news and translated the data into graphs and charts that would speak to the audience without bias.

This infographic incites me to continue researching and responding to current and timely issues.

“Living on Mars,” 2016

Science fiction writers from Ray Bradbury to Andy Weir have written about our possible occupation of the red planet for years. Now, big names in physics and the cosmos, such as the innovator Elon Musk and the theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, are exploring the idea of moving from our planet to our nearest neighbor: Mars.

This infographic is led by my childhood interest in space and my studies in Astronomy during college. I love to read the fiction and the facts about moving outside of our own world — and the reasons why we might be forced to do just that even if we don’t want to.
