Find me on:

Heather Murphy is a digital journalist interested in evolving forms of storytelling and the shifting ways people consume news. She has spent the past two years as a senior staff digital editor at The New York Times, first on the international desk and more recently on the science desk, where she focuses on health stories. She began her journalism career as a reporter for a tiny expat newspaper in Santiago, Chile. Since then, she has held many roles in the realm of online journalism: multimedia producer for NPR, picture editor for Slate and homepage editor for washingtonpost.com, among others. She is accustomed to moving between the roles of producer and reporter and considers herself to be both a word person and a visual person.
