Episode 022 - UPenn w/ Will Chase
Play • 35 min
Scatter Podcast interview with Will Chase, Data Scientist at the University of Pennsylvania. I stumbled upon one of Will's interactive, web-based data visualizations ("Visualizing Risk: Remotely Triggered Earthquakes" - link below) and was fascinated by the way he leveraged the power of R, Mapbox, and D3 for this stunning data storytelling project. Will has a BS in Microbiology and is almost entirely self-taught in the programming, data science, and advanced visualization space. He provides solid resources throughout the episode and lists some of his favorite, world-renowned data visualization designers, and it's great to see him contributing back to the data science community by open-sourcing as many projects as he can. Will is a great resource for anyone wanting to up the ante on their visualization skills. He's responsive via email, Twitter, and GitHub, and I'd definitely recommend following Will on your platform of choice... I have no doubt that he'll rise to be a visualization influencer in the years to come. Enjoy the show!
