Pranav Dixit is a tech reporter based in the San Francisco Bay Area who covers how tech shapes life around the world. He came to the US from India to be a Nieman Fellow at Harvard in 2021 and then became an accidental expat. Before his move, he spent more than five years as an India-based tech correspondent for BuzzFeed News, writing about the impact of Silicon Valley’s largest companies on the culture, society, democracy, and politics of more than a billion people in the region. Pranav’s coverage has largely focused on the human consequences of Big Tech’s growth-at-any-cost approach in emerging markets, and has been cited in dozens of publications. In 2019, he won a Mirror Award for a feature about how rumors and hoaxes that spread through WhatsApp destroyed an Indian village, which he discussed in an episode of Vox’s Land of the Giants podcast.
