Hi! My name is Lisa.
I create data visualisations, currently in Washington, DC, as an OpenNews fellow at the NPR Visuals Team.
OpenNews Fellowship Until January 2017 I will be a Knight-Mozilla OpenNews fellow at NPR. I blog about my learnings and questions daily on my Tumblr TheLisaProject.
I taught courses about data vis at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, at DHBW Ravensburg and at the University of Applied Sciences in Bielefeld.
Meetup People who like data vis are great, so I organized the Data Vis Berlin Meetup until I left the city.
Blog Here I publish experiments, smaller data vis projects and thoughts about teaching, the data vis community, tools etc.:
