Hello, I'm Shiying!

I write, design and code. I studied Data Journalism at Columbia Journalism School and Political Science at Colorado College.

At first, I wanted to be a diplomat, so I picked Political Science as my major in college. Later, I became interested in computers and wanted to be a software engineer. However, during my sophomore year, I joined my college’s newspaper as a news reporter and fell in love with storytelling. As a result, I started my professional life in data journalism, the intersection between storytelling and coding!

Currently, I am a fellow on the data visuals team at The Texas Tribune, a digital-first nonprofit media organization covering Texan politics and policy in Austin. In the past, I've worked at The Wall Street Journal, The Gazette newspaper in Colorado Springs, and The Catalyst student newspaper.
