I help organizations use data
to gain actionable insights,
discover new connections,
and tell stories that matter and last.

Show, not tell

Allow your audience to form their own opinion by seeing the facts. Combining storytelling & data, I help you amplify your words through data visualizations that reveal the deeper truth behind your work.

Find your People

All is connected, like a web we do not see. Leveraging the emerging field of network science, I help you discover and map intricate social ties so you can find your audience, bring people together and build community more effectively.

Uncover the Patterns

Every data exploration starts with a question. Applying the data science process I help you refine, simplify and explore answers to your questions, reaching insights that can help you make more informed decisions.

About Maryam

I’m an explorer and feel lucky to have an extensive technology toolset to rely on. I hold a BSc. in Computer Science and an MSc. in Data Mining and AI. I’ve written code and designed software for more than a decade. Currently I’m focused on data discovery and analysis, community & language detection as well as writing visual essays. The promise of technology in my opinion, is a future in which we have understood and alleviated our (somewhat broken) relationship with nature and people.
