Shanling Lei

Shanling grew up in Bay Area, California, and attended school at the University of Toronto where she graduated with a double major in Physiology and Health & Disease. As a child, Shanling’s dream job was to be a concept illustrator. However, her fascination with human anatomy and natural sciences pushed her to pursue a degree in sciences. When she discovered medical illustration in her second year of college, she knew it was the perfect field to combine both her interest in science and her passion for art.

During her time in BVIS, Shanling wants to expand her skillset in 2D/3D animation and interactive game development. She is also interested in exploring different learning modalities in making science education accessible to a wide audience.
