Hi, I’m Hannah. I’m a data journalist on the graphics team at Bloomberg News where I report with words, data and visuals.

On the side, I run an open-source R package, censusapi, which makes it easy to grab U.S. Census Bureau data programmatically. Previously, I worked at the Urban Institute as a researcher and a data visualization developer and as a data analyst at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I graduated from the University of Rochester with a degree in mathematics and statistics and a minor in epidemiology.
