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 LifeHarper's, The Independent and elsewhere. My story Below Deck was a finalist for a National Magazine Award in the Reporting category and 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.
