Wednesday, April 12, 2017


Rigoberto Carvajal Pérez, a computer engineer, became the first Costa Rican to win a Pulitzer Prize. He is part of the team that investigated and exposed the international corruption affair known as the Panama Papers.

Carvajal, 31, works as a data expert for the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, the group responsible for exposing the affair.

His first project for the consortium was the data transformation of the flat Offshore Leaks database into an interactive web application that allowed journalists and people from all around the globe to explore the networks of the offshore world.
