Blacki is graphics editor at The New York Times, where he develops data-driven stories and interactive visualizations. Prior to this he worked at Bloomberg both in their R&D department and as a data journalist at Bloomberg News. Much of the reporting he has done over the years has been at the intersection of climate science, economic policy and politics.

Apart from doing datavis work in the news much of his other focus is on synthetic biology. In the past he has competed twice at the International Genetically Engineered Machines (iGEM) competition and most recently co-founded a synthetic biology research collective called Brooklyn Bio.
Wayfinding through Disciplines

I'll discuss my relationship to science and how it impacts the way approach doing news. Along with this I will share my personal journey both with how I've come into doing journalism as well as biology. Two disciplines I had never thought I'd be working in. I'll also share examples of the work I've done in both disciplines. We'll address what it means to try to hold yourself accountable while, doing science, communicating science, and working with data in the news.
