I have worked for local, national and international news organisations and non-profit organisations for the past seven years. Some things I have done along the journey:

  • Built a dashboard that gives insights on trends about the coronavirus
  • Trained a think tank’s research team in data-driven storytelling and defined data visualisation guidelines for them.
  • Used 8,000+ faces to talk about candidates in the Indian Elections
  • Analysed 25,000+ Bollywood songs to show the decline of women in solo songs
  • Filed several public record requests to report a full-page newspaper story about the regulation of halfway houses in Florida
