What do you do?

I am an interactive journalist at the BBC News Labs; formerly New York Times.

What’s YourDataStory?

“I startet out working with data more as an engineer at first doing computer programming, than in epidemiology which is all about data.

The role data plays in journalism I see as a very exciting one. There is so much more you can do with your reporting if you have all of the structured data behind it.

Being able to query who’s in a story and what’s their relation to it is a very powerful thing. That’s how I ended up doing this sort of thing in journalism.
