Senior Fellow, Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism
I am a journalist, deeply interested in social justice issues. I am currently working on trafficking and debt bondage issues. I have started work as a researcher with MIT’s Opendoclab, which has been a great way to explore new and interactive forms of story-telling tools and reflect on what needs to change in the practice of traditional journalism.
I worked for The Times of India for about 18 years. In 2010, I came to Harvard Kennedy School for graduate studies. I stayed on at Kennedy School and assisted with the teaching of a course on mobilization of social movements. I am writing a case for teaching at Kennedy School on debt bondage. In 2008, I was selected Nieman Fellow at Harvard and in 2010 as a Mason Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School.
