I’m a designer, engineer, and lecturer in Journalism and Interactive Media at UM’s School of Communication. My current work has been focused on interactive data visualizations, but I’m also interested in industrial design & product development.
When I’m not working, I like watching Bollywood movies, visiting design museums (the Barcelona Design Museum is my favorite), and making the occasional cheesecake for friends & family.
I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, and an MS in Photography (Design) from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
- In fall 2018, I produced this animated short to kick off the final presentations event for MIT Mechanical Engineer’s capstone course, Product Engineering Processes. I also curated the class slideshows during the semester.
- As a 2018 Carnegie-Knight News21 fellow, I investigated hate crimes and intolerance in America. I analyzed court documents and press releases to report on the hate crimes that had been prosecuted since 2010. I developed and produced the interactive piece The State of Hate, and I art directed the graphics in our investigation, Hate in America.
Our investigation won 2019 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in College Journalism, and the 2019 Student Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Digital Reporting.
