I’m a data journalist at KHN, where I report on health care. On the side, I run an open-source R package, censusapi, which makes it easy to grab U.S. Census Bureau data programmatically.

Previously, I worked as a data and graphics reporter at Bloomberg News. Before journalism, I worked in public policy research at the Urban Institute as a data analyst and data visualization developer. I graduated from the University of Rochester with a degree in mathematics and statistics and a minor in epidemiology.
