About me

Data journalist from Hungary. Working at Átlátszó and ATLO, best at creating maps and visualizing various topics.

My name is Krisztián Szabó. I am a data journalist from Hungary.

I got introduced to data visualization by my teacher/mentor/colleague/friend Attila Bátorfy in 2020. Through him, I got an opportunity to write data driven articles to Átlátszó, a Hungarian investigative news outlet. I also work on stunning visualization projects that I publish on ATLO, a site created by Attila. I have a knack for making interactive maps and standalone scrollytelling pieces.
