First things first...
I am the creator and maintainer of https://www.react-simple-maps.io, and mainly work in react and d3.
My academic background is in digital humanities with a particular interest in issue mapping for politics. My recent dataviz work has been focused on public health, humanitarianism, as well as a bit of politics.
Great to meet all of you! 😀
