The New York Times has hired Marco Hernandez from Reuters to be a graphics editor.
He will start in January.
Hernandez most recently worked as a data visualization developer at Reuters in Singapore, where he covered everything from the Kabul evacuation to wildfires to a Chinese mining rescue to the Beirut explosion. He also visualized the massive number of plastic bottles sold and mapped the epic journey of an immense iceberg.
He received a postgraduate degree in graphic arts from the Science and Arts University of Costa Rica, where he later taught as a professor.
