I'm Rahul Mukherjee.

I'm an interactives editor at Hearst, where I work on creating and editing data and visual stories. I've explained how most police in Minnesota avoid punishment, compiled more than 160 Super Bowl predictions into a Graph, and visualized how a World Series MVP ranks against other players in his 135 year franchise.
