Announcement from Graphics Director Kat Downs Mulder and Senior Graphics Editor Chiqui Esteban:

We’re thrilled to announce that Lauren Tierney is joining the Graphics team as a graphics reporter.

Lauren spent the last two and a half years as a cartographer and graphics editor at National Geographic magazine. There, she built a strong portfolio of beautiful, insightful work that includes maps about the melting of Antarctica, the history of London told through artifacts discovered underground during excavation and the migration patterns of elk in Yellowstone.

Before joining National Geographic, Lauren got a Masters of Science in geography from the University of Oregon. While there, she was a graduate research fellow and cartographic designer at the InfoGraphics Lab, where she created maps and graphics for an atlas of wildlife migration. Lauren enjoys biking around the city and rock climbing.

We look forward to welcoming Lauren to The Post. Her first day will be Nov. 6.
