I am a financial journalist and a researcher in international development.
Geneva. New York. New Delhi.
I am a financial journalist who also works in international development.
I have worked as a journalist for more than a decade in New Delhi, New York and Geneva. Outside of journalism, I have had stints at a trade law firm specializing in WTO disputes and at a UN public health organization in Geneva.
I have reported on public finances, India’s monetary policy and the financial sector, for the biggest pink papers in India, based out of Delhi. In New York, I reported on debt and bankruptcy in the immediate aftermath of the financial crises in different newsrooms. In Switzerland, I write on issues of banking secrecy, illicit financial flows, bilateral trade deals, intellectual property and the pharmaceutical industry.
I hold a master's degree in Business & Economic Reporting from New York University (2010) and a master's in Development Studies from The Graduate Institute in Geneva (2013). I also have a PG Diploma in broadcast journalism from the Asian College of Journalism, Chennai (2003). I graduated with a bachelor's degree in science, majoring in microbiology, genetics and chemistry from Osmania University, Hyderabad (2002).
I look forward to opportunities in, not limited to, corporate responsibility, public health, environment and trade - areas where science, economics and law come together.
I am keen on opportunities that will not only utilize my journalistic skills in writing, editing and investigations but also give me scope to do development-related fieldwork.
