migration. cities. justice.

I am a freelance writer and multimedia journalist primarily covering migration, urban policy, and criminal justice. 


My work has appeared in or is forthcoming in The Atlantic, The Baffler, Lux Magazine, The New Republic, Lux Magazine, the BBC, Bloomberg CityLab, The Fuller Project, The Guardian, Teen Vogue, NBC News, NPR, Roll Call, the BBC, 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 girls. I am also currently working on a book project around the themes of migration, place, and justice.

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.
