Data Journalist

I'm a data journalist. In the summer of 2015 I was a Google Journalism Fellow at PRI's The World before joining the newsroom full-time.

I’m also a former fellow at Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism and the founder of DataN, a customizable and affordable training package for small newsrooms with limited resources to produce data journalism.

I want to combine my experience in reporting and storytelling with my skills and knowledge in technology to produce sustainable and better journalism products.

In 2013, I was awarded a Fulbright scholarship by the US State Department to study new media and digital innovation at Studio 20, a graduate program at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. Before coming to US, I spent eight years working as a jounalist with Malaysiakini.com, Malaysia’s most visited news website.

I have interned with NBC Local Media to produce data and visual components. I was also a data visualization consultant at Foreign Policy.
