We are proud to announce that Xaquín González Veira, PhD Student at Gilab, was part of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting with the ‘Disaster in the Pacific’. This is an investigation on the staggering leadership failures that led to deadly accidents in the Navy and Marines by T. Christian Miller, Megan Rose and Robert Faurtechi of ProPublica.
National reporting category can be in any format that most clearly and powerfully tells the story and Xaquín is an expert in data visualization, visual explanations, and interactive storytelling.
The Pulitzers are generally regarded as the highest honour that U.S.-based journalists and organizations can receive. Congratulations!
