Dan Nguyen was a news application developer at ProPublica. He was lead developer on several of ProPublica’s most complex news applications, including the Bailout Tracker and (Stimulus) Recovery Tracker.

For the “Dollars for Docs” project, Nguyen developed software to collect the drug company payment records and cross-referenced them against physician names in federal and state databases. He also developed the publicly searchable database for the payment records and wrote a series of guides to teach his data-gathering techniques to other journalists and researchers.

Previously, Dan worked as a reporter, web developer and multimedia producer for the Sacramento Bee and sacbee.com. His work on multimedia projects won awards from Editor and Publisher and the National Council on Crime and Delinquency.
