About

I’m a reporter and editor, most recently at The Wall Street Journal, where I worked until the end of 2016. After more than 10 years at the Journal, in 2017 I will be on maternity leave and freelancing.

For the past year, I have worked primarily on data analysis for a variety of reporting projects as part of the Journal’s investigative team. I also have written extensively on technology and computer security, as well as related law and government policy.

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.

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.
