Karyn Ho is a science animator and biomedical engineer who thrives at the interface between medicine and art. She uses the depth and breadth of her academic and industry experience to craft award-winning science visualizations.

Karyn creates worlds that are often invisible to the eye, bringing cameras to the inner workings of anatomy, imagining the microscopic world of cells as delightful landscapes, and visualizing molecular and nanoscale data that are beyond the wavelength of light.

Her publication record, funded project proposals, and award-winning science visualizations speak to her ability to distill complex ideas for many audiences.

In addition to visual science communication, Karyn also writes short science articles weekly for Research2Reality, a non-profit online initiative that brings Canadian research to the public. With thousands of followers, Karyn covers topics that range from quantum materials to the genetic basis of migration paths.

Karyn is also a trained medical illustrator with a master's degree in biomedical communications. This accredited program is the only one of its kind in Canada.
