Max Harlow

Max Harlow is part of the Financial Times’ visual and data journalism team in London, and focuses on investigative, data-driven stories.

His work at the FT typically takes an analytical, data-driven approach to public documents, websites, and other non-traditional data sources to reveal truths hidden in plain sight, as well as more typical data journalism, covering elections and the coronavirus pandemic with numbers and graphics.

Max has taught data journalism skills for various groups, including Investigative Reporters and Editors in the US, the Centre for Investigative Journalism in the UK, and at the European Investigative Journalism Conference. He also co-runs Journocoders, a community of London-based journalists and other people working in the media interested in developing technical skills for use in their reporting.

Previously he worked at the Guardian, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, and Ordnance Survey, the UK’s national mapping agency.
