I am an independent data journalist based in Mumbai and Goa. I
report on gender, health, employment and public policy. I want to re-imagine gender reportage in India and write at the intersection of gender, caste and disability.
In 2022, I won the Laadli Media Award for Gender Sensitivity and the Likho Media Award for best data journalism story. I have received numerous international and national fellowships, including the International Center for Journalists' Global Food Security and Nutrition Fellowship, PRB's Public Health Reporting Corps.
My reports have been published in The Third Pole, IndiaSpend and Behanbox and have been republished in Scroll.in and The Quint. I have a post graduate diploma from Asian College of Journalism and I did a 10-week course on data journalism, coding and visualisation from Columbia University.
