Bio
I am a South Asian photojournalist and picture editor based in the American Midwest. I am interested in telling stories that show hope amidst adversity, focusing on the themes of race, social inequity, and the environment. I am pursuing an MA in Journalism at the Missouri School of Journalism, Columbia, MO. Before pursuing visual journalism, I earned a master’s degree in environmental sciences and have held multiple internships and volunteer positions in environmental conservation.
 I am a member of the National Press Photographers Association and Society of Conservation Biology.
