I'm a journalist in the US writing on inequality, how social policy is experienced, and the ways that work is changing. I'm currently a contributing reporter at ProPublica. I was previously a contributing writer for The California Sunday Magazine, and my writing has appeared in The Guardian, This American Life, Harper's, The Independent and elsewhere. My stories “Whatever’s Your Darkest Question, You Can Ask Me” and Below Deck were each finalists for National Magazine Awards in the Reporting category, and Below Deck was a Livingston Award finalist in international reporting in 2018. I received the Sidney Hillman Foundation's Sidney Award and the Martha Coman Front Page Award for Best New Journalist, presented by the Newswomen's Club of New York, in 2017.
I received my B.A. from Princeton University and a Masters in Public Policy from Cambridge University as a Gates Scholar.
