My name is Stephanie Lamm and I’m a computational journalist at The Dallas Morning News. I find stories in data and create visualizations and newsroom tools. I am a May 2017 multimedia journalism and political science graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I most recently interned with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Data Team. I maintained and updated the newsroom’s data archive, assisted reporters with data-driven stories and created interactive graphics for our website. I also interned at The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, where I wrote a little bit of everything for the business desk, and the Chapel Hill bureau of The News & Observer, where I covered general and feature news. You can see the stories I’m most proud of in my clips section.
I also wrote for the North Carolina Business News Wire and Maryland Business News Wire, two sites run by a class of students covering breaking news on local companies. We used SEC filings to write about earnings, private placement, executive compensation and more. Our stories were syndicated across local news outlets.
In my last year at UNC Chapel Hill, I worked with a team of students and professors at the Carolina Data Desk, which assists local reporters with data gathering, analysis and presentation.
I held leadership positions at the daily, independent student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel, and Southern Neighbor, a student-run, monthly news magazine. My work on student activism and protests for The Daily Tar Heel placed in the Hearst Awards for breaking news writing.
