Stay-at-home orders had a disparate effect on violent crime rates between majority-Black and majority-White neighborhoods, according to this Washington Post analysis of 27 cities around the nation. I helped gather sources, analyze citywide data and model trends for this public safety data story.

This yearlong Washington Post investigation introduced me to the field of data journalism. I was honored to work alongside award-winning data reporters like Steven Rich and Andrew Ba Tran to form and analyze the first ever college health center database and to help lead the fact-checking process to ensure its validity.

After the killing of George Floyd this year in Minneapolis and the protests that broke out in its wake, The Washington Post practicum team was tasked with compiling a database of arrests in the 50 largest cities in the country. That database informed The Post's national and local reporting on the unrest.

Local unrest sparked by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis meant that local reporters would need an hour-by-hour account of arrests as they occured. As a part of the practicum team that had already been tracking arrests in D.C., the newsroom relied on my ability to track down arrest reports for daily reporting.

I had the exciting opportunity to put my video editing skills to task working alongside a team of features videographers at The Weather Channel for a piece on which the Investigative Reporting Workshop had partnered with the organization. The story was part of the IRW's ongoing nationwide water quality and justice analysis.

Part of my ongoing duties at the Investigative Reporting Workshop include tracking President Donald Trump's immigration policies and how they've changed over the past four years.
