I worked with two other reporters on this 65,000+ word project about the systemic destruction of rape kits, often following flawed investigations, by police agencies across the country.
Our reporting's impact has spurred apologies, changed practices, caused reviews, and provoked legislation addressing the destruction. "Destroyed" won the Atlanta Press Club's 2018 Investigative Reporting Award, won second place for POY's 2018 Documentary Project of the Year, and was a finalist for NIHCM Foundation’s 2018 Digital Media Award.

Where Trump support and Obamacare use soar together (2017) — CNN
While analyzing healthcare data, I noticed an outlier: one small Nebraskan county had a third of its population on an Obamacare plan, the highest rate in the U.S.—and 93% voted for Trump. CNN sent a reporter out to the county to talk to some folks; I reported on why that contradiction is happening in rural America.
