Technology Reporter for the new York Times
I’m a technology reporter for The New York Times on the disinformation beat, based in New York City. Most recently, I was a senior reporter at BuzzFeed News, where I wrote about artificial intelligence and tech’s invasive effects on people and communities. And a few years ago, I worked as a reporter for WIRED in San Francisco.
In 2019 I won a Livingston Award for excellence in international reporting for my piece, “How Duterte Used Facebook To Fuel the Philippine Drug War.” I also won a 2019 Mirror Award in the special topic category, Best Story on Journalism in Peril, for the same feature.
I’ve spoken publicly about my work at Oxford University during the Blavatnik School of Government’s “Challenges of Government” 2018 Conference, and at the University of Florida, where I was the Science Journalist in Residence for Spring 2019.
I studied science writing at Columbia University, and grew up in Manila, Philippines. Today I live in Brooklyn, New York, with my two cats (Laser Beam Athletepaws and Vivienne Molly).
