Computational journalist

I work for CBC/Radio-Canada, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, as Senior Data Producer, interactive content and visualizations. I am based in Montreal.

My primary mandate is to publish exclusive data-driven stories in innovative forms. My programming skills allow me to gather, process, analyze and visualize data from a journalistic perspective. I also supervise and help other data journalists with their projects.

Since I am bilingual, I often publish my stories in English and French. I also do TV and radio hits on CBC/Radio-Canada networks.

I created and I maintain the open source project simple-data-analysis: an easy-to-use and high-performance JavaScript library for tabular and geospatial data analysis.

I am also preparing an online, open-source course titled Code Like a Journalist. In this course, I plan to teach how to analyze and visualize data using JavaScript/TypeScript.

I am regularly invited to give talks and trainings. I am always interested in connecting with new people. So feel free to reach out! :)
