Using my background in biology and environmental studies, I have begun developing a methodology for using design features of biological systems to reimagine human systems. While this journey began with the Biomimicry Global Design Competition and The Next System National Essay Competition, I have now conducted research for comparing three biological systems to the food system and written an article reimagining higher education. Most recently, I published a book review in the biomimicry magazine Zygote Quarterly and an article on a food system modeled off ants in the environmental solutions magazine Ensia and republished by the Biomimicry Institute
