I’m a fact checker at The New Yorker magazine. Before that, I was a reporting and data fellow with The Global Migration Project, where I wrote and contributed to stories on border politics and immigration policy in the U.S. and abroad.
In May 2017, I graduated with honors from the Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism at Columbia University. My thesis project -- an investigation into a charity fund established by the New York Yankees -- was published on the front page of The New York Times. My work has also appeared in Harper's, The Guardian, Slate, Los Angeles Review of Books, and HuffPost. I've contributed reporting to investigative stories published in ProPublica and The New Yorker.
I conducted research for author Alexandra Zapruder, the granddaughter of Abraham Zapruder, who wrote a narrative history of her grandfather's film of the Kennedy assassination and how one man's home movie became an icon of the 20th century. Twenty-Six Seconds: A Personal History of the Zapruder Film was published by Twelve Books in November 2016.
