Carly Tribull’s Entomology Comics

I got to know Carly Tribull’s amazing work when we both contributed to the ant comic anthology, Myrmex. She is a PhD student at the American Museum of Natural History in New York who also draws science comics about insects. She is the gold standard of an active researcher educating the public about her area of science. I asked her if she could do a guest post about her work, why she does it, and how she balances it with her research. She answered my questions in comic form (of course)!

Y0u can read more about Carly in a recent article on io9, and be sure to follow her on twitter!

    Definitely good stuff! I may still only be an Undergrad in Entomology, but bridging the gap between scientists and non-scientists is so important. Can only commend you for being an artsy scientist ;)
