kanarinka 9 research notes and 111 wiki edits | Joined over 5 years ago

My background is in the arts, software development and civic media. I'm interested in ways to engage the public in collecting, analyzing and taking action on environmental data.

At Public Lab I'm helping organize the Open Water/Riffle project with Don Blair. I'm helping on strategy, software development, outreach, joke-telling and visualization for Open Water. I'm deeply interested in how we get broader audiences engaged with environmental data that matters for their everyday lives.

I'm also interested in data visualization and data storytelling in a journalism context and I'd like to help build Public Lab connections in those areas.
