A reporter in New York

I’m a reporter at The Wall Street Journal, where I work on special projects. From 2010 to 2013, I was a key member of the team behind “What They Know,” the Journal’s long-running series on digital privacy, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Explanatory Reporting in 2012.

My professional interests include data-driven reporting and behavioral economics. My current work focuses on technological tracking and surveillance and the impact these have on business, society and the legal system.

Previously, I was the lead writer and editor for Digits, the Journal’s technology blog. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and have a master’s degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.

I’m particularly interested in computer security techniques for journalists. Please see my Contact page for more information on secure communications.
