Frank Bi

Senior journalist and educator at the intersection of media and technology

I'm a senior journalist, technologist, educator and nonprofit leader passionate about the intersection of media and technology.

Currently, I live in New York City where I work at Vox Media in both editorial and product developing innovative storytelling projects for the web.

Since 2017, I have taught undergraduate and graduate level courses on data literacy and communication at Fordham University as an adjunct professor. I also consult and train students and professional journalists on better leveraging technology to find and tell better stories. I have trained thousands of journalists across North America through trainings in newsrooms, classrooms and conferences.

Outside of the newsroom and classroom, I'm the president of the Asian American Journalists Association’s New York chapter and the national Training Director where I set strategy and oversee the operations for member trainings.


The following are samples of my work at Vox Media.


I have nearly a decade of newsroom experience working at the intersection of editorial and product/technology as an engineer, designer and project manager. I graduated with a degree in computer science at the University of Minnesota and have used it to work across many different news mediums including television, print, magazine and radio. Prior to working at Vox Media, I had stints as a data journalist at Forbes Magazine and a newsroom developer at PBS NewsHour.

Since 2015, I have trained thousands of journalists in newsrooms, classrooms and at conferences across the country. I'm a regular attendee of the NICAR and IRE conferences. I also provide consultation to newsrooms, freelancers and nonprofits on improving their data and tech practices.
