Hello, I’m a news applications developer at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. My work has also appeared in the LA Times, San Francisco Chronicle and San Jose Mercury News.
I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in data-driven journalism in 2016. Before that, I worked as a journalist in India, where I led my news organization’s first data journalism projects.
I use code and data to tell compelling stories. I am also interested in using computational methods for journalism. Want to know more? Here is my résumé.
Ultimate Atlanta School Guide
An Angular 2 web app that allows parents in Georgia to find information on public schools, their test scores, safety ratings, teacher history and more. I also built the Rails-based API that feeds the app from the AJC’s data warehouse.
Georgia Campaign Finance Tracker
A web app written in Backbone + Marionette to track the money flowing into the 2016 federal elections.
Can you turn Georgia blue?
I analyzed AJC poll numbers in October 2016 and turned it into an interactive feature for readers to let them answer the question: what would take to flip Georgia i.e. make it a Democrat state? Built with D3.js.

In light of a bill to curb legal immigration to the U.S. as a way to protect American jobs, I analyzed data from the Department of Homeland Security and found that family members were the biggest beneficiaries of legal immigration, and not job seekers.
Where Matt Ryan threw his passes
Leading up to the 2017 Super Bowl, I made an interactive tour of Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan’s passes and key moments of the 2016-17 season.
Which are Georgia’s winning industries?
I dove deep into employment data and try to answer the question: how has U.S. policy, especially trade policy, affected jobs in Georgia over the last two decades or so?
What do we know about Dreamers in Georgia
A data story about the beneficiaries of the DACA program, an Obama-era initiative to prevent deportation of children who were brought into the U.S. by their parents.
Crime in India
I took India’s dense, 600-page annual crime reports, parsed the data and built an interactive website using Frozen Flask. I believe it's the only website that allows you to track crimes in over 50 cities in India. I even found a mistake in the way the data was recorded — rates for crimes against women were calculated using total population. I wrote cleaning scripts in Pandas to correct this error. The code is on Github.
