I am a journalist based in Pakistan covering climate, technology and human rights. My reporting has appeared in Foreign Policy, VICE, Slate, BuzzFeed News, and other publications. Currently, I am a Labor x Tech fellow at Rest of World. My work covers how technology impacts work and the way we work in South Asia. Read my portfolio of labor reporting here.
My work has been supported by fellowships from the South Asian Journalism Association, One World Media and the EU Journalism Fund. I was a 2020 journalism fellow with FASPE, Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics. And in 2021, I was among the 10 journalists — from a pool of 200 from 55 countries — shortlisted for the Thomson Foundation’s Young Journalist Award.

I am also a member of the Oxford Climate Journalism Network‘s third cohort. The Network is a program of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford and is designed to help journalists develop their reporting on the climate crisis.
