Asma Khalid


Asma Khalid leads BostonomiX - a new WBUR team covering the people, startups and companies driving the innovation economy. You can follow the team on Twitter @BostonomiX.

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 attended rallies for nearly every presidential candidate on both sides of the aisle and crisscrossed the country to hear from voters in key battleground counties.

She was also a founding member of the NPR politics pod squad.

Prior the presidential election, Asma reported on a range of stories — including the Boston Marathon bombings and the trial of James "Whitey" Bulger.

If she's not in the newsroom, you can find her on the tennis court (when it's not snowing in Boston!)
