Angilee Shah

Social Media Manager

I'm the social media manager at Public Radio International. I've spent most of my career writing long pieces (for magazines) and short posts (on Twitter) about politics and culture. I've reported from across Asia, including China, Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, and on diverse cultures across the US, from Southern California to Minneapolis, where I am currently based.

In my non-digital life, I am the co-editor of Chinese Characters (UC Press, 2012) and a consulting editor to the Journal of Asian Studies.
