Quartz has added three members to its team, all based out of different locations.
Youyou Zhou joins the New York office on May 30 as a visual journalist. She joins from the Associated Press, where she was a digital news developer, focusing on design and graphics for AP’s campaign-related coverage during the 2016 election season.
Quartz India adds Sushma Udipi Nagendran as a Chennai-based reporter who will be covering a development-related trio of retail, startups and clean energy. While in the past half-decade she has been working in journalism outlets that included The Times of India, The Hindu Business Line and Dow Jones’ MarketWatch, she comes to journalism by way of a sociology background.
