Skillset: Jennifer

Design/UX: I have a longtime interest in graphic design which I learn and practice mostly as a hobby with the help of online courses and websites. Comfortable with Photoshop (use it to make graphics at work), getting there with InDesign.


  • Familiar with HTML and CSS though I have not kept up to the level of HTML5 and CSS3
  • Learning R, the programming language I’m currently focused on and looking to progress in; used it to work with Twitter and Spotify data and do simple text analysis

Research: Fact-checking news stories is one of my tasks at work so I can contribute through some of the skills I’ve picked up.

Project manager: I enjoy organizing and planning using spreadsheets and tools like Trello but in terms of managing projects for a group, I don’t have much experience there.

Outreach: I can help find relevant contacts, design graphics for social media, and help draft letters and emails but other than that, not my area of expertise.

Other skills and experience:

  • Editing texts, writing news round-ups, news curation, making visualizations using R and Tableau
  • Helped develop an informal curriculum for ESL students
  • Online tools: Mailchimp, Readymag, Splash, WordPress, Carto
