Following her software career in the U.S. and Japan, Dianne used her programming skills to spot story ideas in Census 2000 data for the Associated Press. She then obtained a master’s in journalism from Columbia University, adding to her economics degree. She covered finance for Bloomberg News and worked the health-science beat for New Hampshire Public Radio. In 2008 she was awarded a year-long fellowship at MIT’s Knight Science Journalism program – and stayed there to build a multimedia training program and oversee design of a custom website as the program’s multimedia manager.
Her stories have been on NPR and in The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, and several others. Dianne is currently using her programming background to dig into data visualization related to business and science.
