Queletzú Aspra

Mexico City

with Elisabeth Malkin

Born and raised in Mexico City, finished a PhD in epigenetics but felt that something was missing from academic life, I changed gears and landed a job as a data journalist where I met an amazing team with whom we won the Inter American Press Society price for a piece about latin American retirement pension money destinations. This career shifting event made me realize that journalism marries my long standing need to disclose information like science did, and my love for storytelling. I enjoy analyzing quantitative data and I have worked with themes around gender inequalities in public health issues, glass ceiling in academic environments, public contracting and urban development.
