Geoff McGhee is a visual journalist by background who now produces multimedia and information graphics at an interdisciplinary research center at Stanford University. McGhee has worked on such projects as live-data trackers of wildfires, drought, snowpack, and precipitation; multimedia explainers on issues such as the oil and gas boom in North Dakota, and the groundwater crisis in California; interactive histories of land conservation in California and the ecology of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. McGhee will share some of his work and the lessons that came with it, as well as the defining questions of his career in journalism and research:
- How do you engage the public around important but technical issues?
- How do you find and tell stories in data?
- How do you visually communicate information in ways that maximize comprehension?
