Thanks to denial, I am immortal
— Philip J. Fry, Futurama
Hello world, I'm Mahima, an award-winning data journalist, helping you make sense of data through analysis and visualization. My expertise lies in data and design.
Currently a data developer at the Canadian Press where I help automate news tasks for the company and clients. I was covering the COVID-19 pandemic for CTVNews.ca by making daily news graphics and interactive dashboards for the website.
Before immigrating to Canada, I was a data journalist for the BBC in New Delhi where I used data-driven and design principles for media research and analysis across South and East Asia.
In 2016, I was part of the data desk on the investigative team at the Palm Beach Post in South Florida. Here I used data to investigate state and local officials. I covered President Trump, school shootings, hurricanes and the drug epidemic in South Florida.
I graduated from the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in New York with a master's in Computational Journalism. Before that, I was working for an independent media organization in New Delhi, India where I designed graphics and interactive visualizations.
I am Sci-Finatic. I collect vintage science fiction novels and enjoy watching game plays of Mass Effect and Bioshock.
I am obsessed with manga and anime. Not the otaku kind of obsession, but the kind that sempai always notices.
I use design and art as a form of catharsis
An animal person in and out. I have had three dogs at the same time and have raised generations of cats. Pet sitter for life.
While living in New Delhi with the worst air quality in the world, I gained a newfound appreciation for house plants.
