I took several course in data and computational journalism at Columbia and am looking forward to putting these skills into practice. The image at left is from a group project from one of those classes. My team analyzed accounts that were amplified by Russian troll accounts on Twitter, and we presented our results at Bloomberg. My GitHub is pretty lonely so far, but I do have one project on there - an automated tweet for @climatesociety that gives a weekly update on El Niño/La Niña sea surface temperatures by pulling data/imagery from several websites. Basically I'm just trying to automate the part of my job I don't love...but more exciting things to come!
What climate phenomenon are you, actually?
You’ve heard about climate change, you’ve probably heard of El Niño, but maybe you’re more of a Madden-Julian Oscillation type. I picked the brains of scientists and friends to pair ocean temperature patterns with disposition. Take the quiz to find out your type.
I co-created this blog with a co-worker.
