Indus Repulic - reporting from Lahore.JPG

I am a freelance journalist based in Karachi, Pakistan, reporting on identity politics, ethnic conflict and social justice.

My reporting has been published or is forthcoming in Harper’s, Wired, Caravan, BBC, Reuters, Dawn, Herald and The News on Sunday. 

For four years, I was a staffer at the monthly Herald, Pakistan’s oldest current-affairs magazine. My work on dynasticism and political inequality was a finalist for the 2014 Global Editors Network Data Journalism Awards and my reporting on Pakistan’s looming water crisis received a citation for reporting excellence from the Asia Society.

Between 2015 and 2017, I was a Fulbright scholar at NYU; in the summer in between, I worked with Reuters in Mexico City as an Overseas Press Club fellow. I hold an undergraduate degree in Government and Economics from the London School of Economics.
