Sruthi Pinnamaneni

I am a freelance radio and video journalist based in New York and Vienna.

I graduated from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism with honors, while assisting at the BBC-NY Bureau and a documentary production company, where I worked on the award-winning feature film, Kumare.  As the audio/video correspondent at The Economist, I taped political stories in the marble halls of the United States Senate and the baptism pools of brassy Harlem churches. In India, I traveled between cities and villages to produce an Economist video series on rural education and the informal economy in slums.  

I've worked on stories that have aired at various shows, including MarketplaceFreakonomicsRadiolab and Studio 360. I have produced pieces about poison squads, pop-up books and a band whose musical performance depends one live molecule.  In 2013, I won a PRX STEM grant, supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
