Scientific Designer

While obtaining his PhD, Gil discovered he had a penchant for graphic design – in his words, he noticed he was more worried about the quality of his figures than that of his data, at a certain point. He eventually graduated and pursued opportunities that allowed him to further hone his skills and eventually made it a full time job.
