Data-driven stories that matter
As a data journalist, I acquire, clean and analyse data to tell compelling stories. This involves visualising complex stories using charts and maps. Below are some examples of my data storytelling work.
As part of my data journalism postgraduate course at University College Dublin, I investigated the different countries around the world that sell passports for monetary gain. After examining the countries that offer such schemes, I compared the countries with the most powerful passports by the number of visa-free travel countries. By analysing IMF data, I found that countries with high public debt tend to opt for economic citizenship schemes to raise much needed funds.
The easy availability of contactless cards, mobile payments, and online sales has led to a rise in cashless payments. But how far off is a truly cashless society? The global shift towards a cash-free existence is expressed in this infographic. This was designed for CNN's "Future Finance," a series showcasing future trends related to the global financial system.
As part of the 50th anniversary of the first woman in space, I produced a timeline for CNN’s Leading Women showcasing the history of women in space.
