Hi! I'm Ranjani, a Brooklyn-based video journalist. I'm currently a senior producer at Vox, where my work focuses largely on history, racial justice, and inequality — and how they all intersect. I host and produce a series called Missing Chapter, where we we set the record straight on stories that are often overlooked or distorted in history textbooks.
Previously, I was the first ever Vox-ProPublica fellow, where I worked in both newsrooms to create videos that combined Vox's visual style with ProPublica's deep investigative reporting. I have also produced with independent documentary companies, National Geographic, Al Jazeera America, and NBC News.
I'm a Houston native, I come from a mixed Bengali and Telugu family, and will always say yes to karaoke. Want to say hi? Contact me using whichever is your favorite method from the icons below.
