Hi! I’m a journalist covering technology and the internet from Los Angeles, California. I focus on China's internet ecosystem and how it impacts the world. I'm currently a technology reporter at the media startup Semafor, where I help write the Semafor Tech newsletter with my colleague Reed Albergotti. (Sign up here to receive it in your inbox twice a week!)

Most recently, I was an investigative tech reporter at NBC News. Before that, I was a senior editor at Rest of World, a non-profit newsroom focused on tech in the Global South, where I covered Amazon's international operations in six different countries. My investigation into the Chinese fast fashion giant Shein for Rest of World won the 2022 Society of Publishers in Asia award for excellence in technology reporting.

I also spent three years as a staff writer at WIRED magazine, where I broke stories about Amazon, TikTok, Google, and Facebook. Earlier in my career, I worked as an editor at Motherboard, Vice's technology and science vertical. My reporting on sexism at Google for Motherboard was featured on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and led to the firing of a senior engineer.

 

My reporting has appeared in The Atlantic, Insider, The Guardian, Wired, Vice, The Information, NBC News, and other publications. I regularly appear on podcasts and TV news programs, including the TODAY show, National Public Radio, CBS News, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Good Morning America, and the BBC.
