Patricia Clarke
Data Journalist

“It’s the people behind the numbers who matter. As our world – and the power structures that uphold it – are increasingly measured through data, my job is to make sense of it all and tell stories that help people understand what is going on around them. Only then can we hold power to account and give a voice to our most marginalised communities. Tortoise gives me the space to do just that.”

Patricia Clarke is a Data Journalist at Tortoise. She joined the organisation after completing an MSc in Digital Journalism at Goldsmiths, which reinforced the power of data and the importance of sharp, accurate, data-driven reporting. She was previously Commissioning Editor at Culture Trip, and has worked as an editor at several print and digital publications, researching, editing, writing and commissioning stories. Born in Spain to a British-Argentine family, and having lived in Madrid and Paris, she is now based in London.
