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.

Since 2020, I have been working as a data journalist at Átlátszó, an online investigative news site, where I am currently the editor of the data column. I also make data-heavy, interactive visualisations on ATLO, a site created by Átlátszó, with Attila Bátorfy, who introduced me to the world of data visualisations three years ago. Currently, my main interest is static visualisation design.
