Data scientist / data journalist / project manager at swissinfo.ch

Lausanne & Bern, Switzerland

I am a data scientist, turned data-journalist. I do data cuisine: data & statistical analysis, information visualisation and data storytelling. Enthusiastic about data science, open-data, open-source and data-driven journalism! Born in Lausanne Switzerland, now working in Bern.

I currently perform the full suite of responsibilities associated with leading the data-driven journalism at swissinfo.ch. I also train and support journalists in data journalism and I manage the IT infrastructure for data visualisation.

I hold a Ph.D. in computational biology from Oxford University. I have been mining data for more than 10 years, whether in genetics research, in finance for a hedge fund or for a newsroom. Get in touch for consultancy or if you have data that needs serious digging.
