Adina is a visual data journalist with the Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ). With data, design, and code, Adina connects people and subjects that matter. One of her latest investigations: how palm oil threatens protected rainforest in Indonesia.

Edward is managing partner at Earthrise Media. He is a physicist, educator, satellite investigator, and data scientist. Edward taught the NASA quantum computer to find Californian trees in satellite imagery. And he teamed up with Reuters reporters to investigate how China’s largest freshwater lake was decimated by sand mining.

Sylke Gruhnwald, a freelance investigative journalist and co-founder of our network, will moderate the discussion.

We kick off our network with a lunchtime talk on Wednesday, 29 June from 12.30 to 1.30 PM via Zoom. Our guest speaker will be Diego Arguedas Ortiz from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford.

Diego has covered climate change since 2013 and founded the first dedicated news outlet in Central America. He now lives in the UK and runs the Oxford Climate Journalism Network at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, which has 200 members from 60 countries.
