Data work

The New Humanitarian

Pew Research Center​​

From 2016 to 2019, I worked as associate digital producer and writer on the team that produced Pew Research Center's Fact Tank data blog. At Fact Tank, I wrote about a variety of issues, including but not limited to women in leadership around the world, immigrants and children of immigrants in the U.S. Congress, American teens and depression, racial divides in America's schools, the rise in renting, and Americans' awareness of gender-neutral pronouns. I also wrote the popular year-end "striking findings" roundup articles for 2016, 2017 and 2018.
