After a short stint as a scientist, he switched careers to journalism and now combines research skills learned in science with traditional journalistic techniques.
Using a combination of data analysis, data visualisation, and programming he has worked on everything from large investigations like the Nauru Files and Panama Papers to detailed analysis of trends in popular Australian music over time, and using council datasets to determine naming trends for dog breeds.
He has won a Walkley award for his work on the Deaths Inside investigation into Indigenous deaths in custody. He has also been shortlisted in the Walkleys for the Nauru Files, and for a project visualising Australian census data. He has twice been a finalist in the international data journalism awards.
