I’m Benedict. Living in Munich, Germany.
Currently, I am working as a data journalist and digital journalism trainee at the Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany’s leading daily.
I care a lot about making data accessible and digging deep into big datasets to find exiting stories for our readers. And I love to make stories shine – with great visuals.
Before starting work I studied political science in a master’s degree at LMU Munich – and wrote my master’s thesis about open data in German municipalities.
From time to time I still do podcasts for the SZ and small radio pieces for BR PULS – sometimes I even win something.
As I data journalist I mainly use
Python with all different sorts of packages. Sometimes I use
CSS – to build websites or to scrape the web 😉
