Data Visualisation Intern, Wikimedia Foundation
"Above all else show the data." – Edward Tufte

About me

I find the concept of data visualisation very empowering. For me, portraying and visualising seemingly bland and vague data and eventually to make it meaningful and useful has a childlike fascination to it.

I love reading about astronomy and history. You might find me tracing out constellations or attempting to spot messier objects in the night sky.

Also, I consider myself a voracious reader. Please feel free to suggest any interesting books.

My work

I will be designing and developing general purpose tools which will help the Communications team to generate insightful data visualisations using Wikimedia and Wikipedia data which could be shared internally / externally. I also help the Communications team with interactive content for blog stories.
