Stories I’ve covered for the Brown Daily Herald include the closure of the only full-time daycare exclusively for children of University faculty, students and staff; sexual assault on campus and the missing person search for former undergraduate Sunil Tripathi. I also co-created an independent study class at Brown on radio storytelling in the fall of 2012.

At the Texas Tribune, I wrote stories on the criminal justice and environment beats, from environmental concerns along Texas’ longest river to new legislation preventing inmates from getting married. I also contributed reporting to stories on the passage of Texas’ restrictive abortion bill and the controversy surrounding the legislation. While at the Tribune, I wrote about the passage of new state driving laws and Texas agriculture for the New York Times.

I’ve also covered local politics and pulses for the Washington Post, including stories on how Maryland prisons don’t have consistent data on solitary confinement and what residents tell state leaders combating Maryland’s heroin epidemic. I ran a five-mile obstacle course to tell the story of nine women racing for domestic violence awareness, traveled to Lebanon (in Pennsylvania) to tell a grieving widow’s survival story, and reported on city and county council hearings across the region. I’ve written too about local crime and oddities, and the occasional protest and parade(s).
