Exhibition on the scientific method and science advances via comics and illustrations.

Professor  Bourouiba and Artist Argha Manna are working to showcase a historical perspective on the scientific method and the "highly nonlinear" evolution of ideas in science through a range of examples ranging from physics and astronomy to infectious disease transmission via comics as illustration.

Rotch Library Gallery MIT

Prof. Lydia Bourouiba founded and directs The Fluid Dynamics of Disease Transmission Laboratory at MIT. Her research interests and activities span a broad range of applied mathematics/mathematical physics approaches at the intersection of physics, mathematics, and biology and at the Fluids and Health intersection.

Argha Manna is a cancer researcher turned comics artist. He explores the historical perspectives of scientific development and social issues through the dual lenses of artist and researcher, bridging the gap between academic research and visual storytelling.
