Meet Our Students
Annie Marcotte '10 '13
Annie Marcotte, who earned her BFA in graphic design at MICA, works at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory helping engineers and scientists with their presentations. "So much of the scientific work done at the Lab revolves around presenting data and results to sponsors who provide the funding," she said. Recognizing the importance of illustrating research and data effectively, Marcotte enrolled in the Information Visualization program to enhance her skills. She's found the online environment liberating as without it, "I would not be able to attend grad school because of my job." She anticipates that the experience will enable her to contribute more meaningfully to solving engineering problems. "I will be able to work side-by-side with my engineer colleagues, looking at data, and figuring out what it means through exploring it and visualizing it," she said.
