I research stories using code and databases, then I make data visualizations and interactive graphics to help tell these stories. I also interview people and write articles and essays.
Currently, I am the Knight Data Journalism Fellow at the Center for Public Integrity. I used to work as a staff writer at Priceonomics, and as a politics blogger at MapLight. Other outlets that have published my work include: Vox, Quartz, The Washington Post, The L.A. Times, and The Pudding.
I have my M.A. in Journalism ('12) and my B.S. in Symbolic Systems ('11), both from Stanford University.
