Megha and Justin will join our international investigations team based in London, alongside:
Jane Bradley, our U.K. investigative correspondent. Jane’s work has focused on uncovering abuses of power, financial crime and corruption, and social injustices. She previously worked at BBC’s flagship investigative program, Panorama, and BuzzFeed’s U.K. investigative team. She is a Pulitzer finalist and a three-time Orwell Prize finalist.
Selam Gebrekidan, an international investigative correspondent, who was a driving force behind the Times’s investigative efforts during the first year of the coronavirus pandemic. For that work, she shared in The Times’s Pulitzer for public service. She has reported on corruption in South Africa, showed how European farm subsidies propped up far-right oligarchs and, most recently, tracked the centuries-long trail of Haitian debt. Before joining the Times she was a data and enterprise reporter for Reuters.
The team will be aided by news assistant Sarah Hurtes, a former Times freelancer and graduate of Columbia Journalism School.
Please join us in welcoming Megha, Justin and Sarah to this new and ambitious team .
