Multimedia reporter, data journalist and coder
New York based Lam Thuy Vo will shortly become an interactive editor for Al Jazeera where she'll lead a team of multi-platform journalists in covering national and international news. Previously, Lam spearheaded video operations for The Wall Street Journal in Asia. As the editorial lead for video content in the region, she worked with more than a dozen bureaus to create both breaking news stories, regular series and enterprising multimedia projects. She's covered stories across the region, including the 2011 Japanese earthquake, the North Korean shelling of the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong and climate change issues in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta. At The Wall Street Journal she started training print reporters in video production and has been teaching online journalism skills at conferences ever since. Most recently, she developed a basic data journalism course that she teaches online at University of Massachusetts Amherst's journalism school.
