I am a staff writer at The New Yorker. I won a 2017 National Award for Education Reporting, and have twice been a finalist–in 2016 and 2018–for the Livingston Award. My work has also been supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.  

Publications:  In addition to The New Yorker, my writing has appeared in The New York Times, Oxford American, The Atavist Magazine, The GuardianThe Atlantic, The Nation, The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, and Bookforum. 

Translations: My translations of literary fiction have appeared primarily in Words Without Borders.  I have also published an e-book of my translations (with author interviews and introduction), titled Si estás en Madrid/If you’re in Madrid (Musa a las 9, 2012). In addition to fiction, I have translated legal casebooks, art books, journalism, and essays for publishers in Spain, South America, and the US.

Education: I studied English and Philosophy at Columbia University (New York, NY).  I am also a former Fulbright Scholar (2010-2011).
