My name is Joey Lee and I’m a geographer and interaction designer interested in computation and collaboration.

My work is centered around maps and visuals - with data, technology, and code as my main media. I am passionate about technological literacy, cities, skateboards, and pixels and have been fortunate enough to wrangle up most of these elements into my work.

In parallel with my projects around maps and teaching, I have spent my master’s studies developing new methods for mapping CO2 emissions in cities with the hope that more local efforts can be made to mitigate the impact of CO2 emissions on climate change.

I studied at UCLA, started working in visualization at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and began programming at the University of British Columbia. My friends have been hugely influential in shaping my interests.

I’m currently a Mozilla Science Fellow based in Vancouver, Canada experimenting with new ways in making science open.
