FullSizeRenderTerra Ciolfe is a reporter, data analyst and developer based in Toronto.

After a few years reporting in communities from Toronto to the East Coast, she recently decided to go back to school to kick her skills to the next level and find new ways to tell stories.

She graduated from the Master of Journalism program at the University of King’s College in May 2015, where she specialized in data-driven and investigative reporting. Her masters’ project used collision data to expose loopholes in Nova Scotia’s drivers licensing system.

As a digital and multimedia project specialist at The Globe and Mail, she worked on her coding skills with the goal of finding original and unorthodox ways to tell stories. She also honed in on her data wrangling skills by helping reporters understand complex spreadsheets and find stories in large datasets.

Her work has appeared publications, such as The Globe and Mail, Maclean’s Magazine, The Chronicle Herald, and on the CBC airwaves.
