In a year defined by a pandemic, journalists relied on data and science to tell the story that has impacted every corner of the globe. Please join Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) and the Pulitzer Center on Tuesday, April 6 at 5:30pm AST (10:30am EDT) for a conversation with three Pulitzer Center grantees whose work over the past year has set a very high standard for the profession. 

Youyou Zhou is a New York-based freelance data journalist working with graphics and code. She produces data-driven, visual, interactive, and experimental journalism that breaks free of words-based formats. 

Charles Piller writes investigative stories for Science. He previously worked as an investigative journalist for STAT, the Los Angeles Times, and The Sacramento Bee, and has reported on public health, biological warfare, infectious disease outbreaks, and other topics from the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Central America. 

Eliza Barclay is a science and health editor at Vox. Formerly, she was a reporter and editor at NPR, and most recently edited the food blog “The Salt.” As editor of “The Salt,” she received a James Beard Award, a Gracie Award, and an Association of Food Journalists Award.

This event will be moderated by Tom Hundley, senior editor at the Pulitzer Center.
