Hello world!
I'm Vanessa.

I'm an investigative data journalist working at Süddeutsche Zeitung in Munich and I'm passionate about the opportunities new technologies offer to journalism.

In 2015 I passed the Lede Program in Computing and Data Science at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City. Before, I used to work as an Online Editor at the German local newspaper Heilbronner Stimme and was Rudolf Augstein data fellow at the investigative office CORRECT!V in Berlin.

Currently I'm co-organizer of Hacks/Hackers Munich and member of the open data community Code for Germany. Further, I write about data journalism and other media stuff on my blog #DIGILAB and speak about these topics at conferences.

Yet the best thing on earth I cannot do on the internet: I enjoy packing my backpack and hiking through the awesome Alps.
