Marie-Louise Timcke is a German data journalist and heads Funke Interaktiv, the interactive and data team of the Funke Media Group. Formerly known as the Interactive Team of the Berliner Morgenpost, the journalists, developers and designers regularly publish applications, graphics, maps and storytelling formats for the titles of the Group — still including the Berliner Morgenpost, but also other German local newspapers like the Hamburger Abendblatt or the WAZ.
Timcke studied molecular medicine for two years, but then moved on to science journalism and finally discovered her love for coding and statistical analysis. While still at university she founded the initiative Journocode together with fellow students to learn data-driven skills. Today, she is the CEO of the Journocode limited company and with her team, she offers workshops that teach journalists how to find and tell stories with data.
