Asma Khalid leads a new WBUR team covering the people, startups and companies driving the innovation economy.
Asma was drawn to tech reporting after two years on the presidential campaign trail – where she consistently saw the effect technology has on policy and politics. She's particularly interested in stories around automation and the future of work.
Asma covered the 2016 presidential campaign for NPR – focusing on the intersection of demographics and politics. She was also a founding member of the NPR politics pod squad.
She’s now working on piloting a new tech podcast with NPR’s Aarti Shahani.
