Her political coverage mostly spotlights marginalized issues and voices.

Most recently she completed a seven-month investigative project, with support from the Fund for Investigative Journalism, on how transgender women are housed in U.S. immigration detention facilities, and challenges for transgender female women and migrants in Mexico.
