Joseph Majalca, M.S.

Born in Tucson, Arizona and relocating to Chicago during late adolescence. Joseph Majalca holds a B.A. in Art from Northeastern Illinois University and later returned to earn an additional degree in Anthropology in 2012. Upon completion of his undergraduate studies, he was awarded scientific illustration internships within the Field Museum’s anthropology department as well as Chicago Botanic Garden’s Dixon National Tallgrass Prairie Seed Bank Lab. After finishing his internships, he moved to New York City for a one-year period to take advantage of the city’s robust figure drawing and art scene. With a return to Chicago, he was accepted to the Biomedical Visualization graduate program at University of Illinois at Chicago and graduated in 2023. Throughout his academic and professional career Joseph has codified his background in art, anthropology, and the biological sciences into a cohesive specialized trajectory. This involves the development and employment of a diverse digital media skill set which includes, 3D modeling, animation, molecular visualization, and interactive design.
