Hello!This is Beatriz, a sociologist and a publicist working specialised in data visualization. I started my career 10 years ago, working as a social and market researcher, taking part in projects that cover a (as much as I can) wide variety of topics, ranging from rural development to usability tests, including communication, User Generated Content and Social Media, Inclusive Social programs impact...
In those years, I have always tried to report meaningful, well communicated insights through visual communication of the information. In addition, I have always liked the design and building things. I figure out that is why, five years ago, I decided to learn some programming languages to design and build data visualizations.
I started by learning R, followed by d3.js, HTML and CSS. As I hadn't any programming background and I've been learning on my own, this took a while. I should thank you to the resources that have helped me in this trip, such as the Coursera platform, Scott Murray and his book 'Interactive Data Visualization for the Web', the great CSS tutorials frontazo by Sebastián Hermida and many many contributors at stackoverflow.com.
Currently, I am available! seeking a position in a team or project, requiring research and information visualization skills. You can take a look at my resume here.
Thanks for visiting me!
