Meet our Content Team

Our Education Content Team is a highly skilled and experienced team who are passionate about science and learning! We design and create the lessons and labs within Lt and Lt LabStation, in a variety of subject areas including physiology, anatomy, nursing, medicine. and biology. Our team includes instructional designers, medical illustrators, and a localization expert.

An important aspect of our work is to keep up with the latest learning design strategies and evidence-based teaching practices so that we can apply these strategies and theories to create accessible, interactive lessons. We introduce students to metacognitive skills so that they can take control of their own learning, and further engage them through questions and interactive activities.

Our medical illustrators make sure our lessons are full of beautiful images with a clear and consistent style, while taking accessibility guidelines into account.

“I want to make high quality and engaging material that pushes the boundaries of science education.”

- Tim, Instructional Designer


  • BSc (Hons) Geology and Zoology

    Content Team Leader

    While studying toward my degree at the University of Otago, I discovered a love of teaching when I began tutoring math, which eventually developed into a career as an instructional designer. I love to approach teaching from the perspective of the learner, and I want to give students the tools they need to understand the world around them.

    Favorite Lt collection   
    Our Veterinary Physiology collection is such a comprehensive look at the subject; having case studies that can be followed throughout the lessons brings a wonderful element of storytelling to learning.


    MSc Marine Science, BSc Biology

    Instructional Designer

    I’m passionate about fostering scientific curiosity and empowering students to take ownership of their learning. My background is in biology and marine ecology, but after a year researching assessment practices in higher education I gained an interest in the cognitive science behind how people learn and remember. I love staying up-to-date with the latest studies in that field, and implementing research-based learning strategies in our lesson design.

    Favorite Lt collection   
    The Preclinical Medicine Collection is really special because it includes case studies that feature videos of real patients (not actors!), their families, and the entire medical team involved in their care. It’s really powerful to integrate medical science alongside candid videos of individuals sharing their personal experiences with a variety of medical conditions.


    MSc Neuroscience, BA (Hons) Psychology

    Instructional Design Specialist

    I have an interest in health science, particularly related to the brain. My Master’s research explored learning, anxiety, and brain inflammation after stroke, and I've enjoyed studying a wide range of life science subjects including physiology, anatomy, and psychology. Good science education is vital to keep advancing both healthcare and neuroscience and I want to make high-quality and engaging material that pushes the boundaries of science education.

    Favorite Lt collection   
    The Neuroscience Collection - a large collection of fun labs with a wide range of topics - from reflexes and muscle twitch experiments to the Stroop effect and classical conditioning.


  • PostGradDip Science Communication, BSc (Hons) Zoology

    Instructional Designer

    My love for animals carried me into my zoology degree and toward science, but while finishing my BSc I realized I missed the more creative side of things. I found science communication to be right up my street, explaining hard science in fun and approachable ways to people from all backgrounds. I enjoy coming up with ideas that are a bit out there and incorporate lots of different skills to make an engaging yet easy way of imparting scientific knowledge.

    Favorite Lt collection   
    The Biology Collection, because it has a little bit of everything in it. I like being able to go from photosynthesis to cells to the atmosphere. It’s a great place to start to see what aspect interests you the most.


    BBioMedSc Functional Human Biology

    Instructional Designer

    Ever since I was a child I’ve had a strong fascination with how the body works and was determined to find any “easter eggs” of the human body, and tell anyone I could about my new discoveries. By coaching and tutoring during high school and university, I found my love of processing and conveying information for others to understand easily. In this role I enjoy imagining myself as a student who doesn’t yet understand the concept, and thinking of ways which would help make the concept ‘click’.

    Favorite Lt collection   
    The Exercise Physiology Collection, being able to understand how our bodies respond to exercise and why is both incredibly fascinating and applicable to everyday life.


    BA, DipEd, DipDigitalDesign

    Medical Illustrator

    As a medical illustrator I develop the artwork and multimedia that brings our digital content to life! My background in graphic design and education gives me a passion for creating fun and interactive learning experiences that engage the senses and improve learners' knowledge and understanding. My role includes illustration, photography, and video editing - and I put these all together in Lt, with its easy authoring system and sleek layout!

    Favorite Lt collection   
    The Anatomy Collection stands out for me. It covers every system of the human body, while delving into histology, dissection, and model labs. It has a great array of visual elements and activities to help students understand the material.


  • PhD, BSc (Hons) Biochemistry

    Medical Illustrator

    Throughout my time studying biochemistry, I developed a passion for making graphical representations of complex datasets. This, combined with a love for the visual arts, led me to become a medical illustrator. I believe clear illustrations greatly enhance a student’s understanding of science. I embrace the challenge of creating images that assist with communicating complex scientific concepts to students.

    Favorite Lt collection   
    The Understand Your Physiology resource - it has such a broad range of interactive questions which are great for student engagement, as well as sections designed to allow students to apply their knowledge.
