Welcome, everyone! Here’s the program for the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, (#GIJC13), scheduled for October 12-15, 2013, in beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It’s the first time we’re holding the GIJC in the global south, and we’re combining it with two other key events in journalism: the annual Latin America Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN), and the International Congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

I specialize in launching and managing innovative projects around the world to help media capitalize on mobile and digital technology.

I do this currently as the deputy director of the Knight International Journalism Fellowships at ICFJ, where I oversee data innovation fellows working across Latin America and Africa.

We're looking for fellows, partners and projects for 2014, with an emphasis on mobile. The location could be Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe or Latin America, though our preferences are Asia and Latin America. Ping me if you'd like to talk more on this.
