migration. cities. justice.
I am a freelance writer and multimedia journalist primarily covering migration, urban policy, and criminal justice.
My work has appeared in The Nation, The Atlantic, The Baffler, Lux Magazine, The New Republic, Harper's Bazaar, the BBC, Bloomberg CityLab, The Fuller Project, The Guardian, Teen Vogue, NBC News, NPR, Roll Call, and other publications.
My writing spans genres, ranging from magazine features and essays to political analyses and investigations. I have also written and reported podcast segments, radio series, and investigative audio features.
I am a 2022 Ira A. Lipman fellow at Columbia University, working on a long form piece about the experiences of unaccompanied migrant youth. I am also embarking on a year-long investigation into the treatment of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border as the 2022-2023 Ida B. Wells fellow. Apart from these stories, I am also chipping away at a book project (represented by Julia Kardon at HG Literary).
I am originally from India and have reported in the U.K., France, and Germany, apart from the United States. I live in Queens, New York, with my partner and dog.
