I’m a reporter at The Wall Street Journal, where I work on special projects. Since 2010, I have been 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 by governments and private companies and the impact this has 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.
