Anthony received a PhD in physics from the University of New Mexico in 2013. His research is focused on the understanding of how heavy water isotopes affect living systems. He believes that information should be free to everyone, and as such all of his dissertation research is provided open access to all at During his dissertation research, he became interested in making scientific data more accessible and began to study graphic design principles and techniques. Anthony even undertook some freelance work. He founded IheartAnthony, Inc, a graphic design firm dedicated to eye-popping design to it’s clients. Just 2 weeks after defending his PhD dissertation, he entered the 2013 UNM Entrepreneurial Challenge to develop the business plan of S’wich It Up. He and his partner (and significant other) Saliha went on to win second place in the competition and $5,000! In his spare time, Anthony enjoys photography, walks on the beach, and is an avid fan of the New York Knicks. You can see him around the world with his pet T-rex documenting their adventures and enjoying life. When not making sandwiches Anthony can be found leading the underground resistance known as Open Science to make the world’s scientific information more open and accessible to all.
