Annie brings a wealth of experience and an eye for compelling human stories to the beat. She served as the India bureau chief from 2013 to 2018, leading our coverage from South Asia and Myanmar. She was honored with the Daniel Pearl Award for Outstanding Reporting on South Asia in 2018 for a reconstruction of a massacre in a Rohingya village. She has also reported from conflict zones in Ukraine and Iraq, where she spent the summer of 2011 examining the continued violence and ramifications of the U.S. troop withdrawal.
This will be a homecoming for Annie, who was born and raised in Lawrence, Kan., and graduated from the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Kansas. She is a lifelong Jayhawks basketball fan.
