Panel moderator, Asia Correspondent at Quartz

Hong Kong

Heather is the Asia correspondent at Quartz based in Hong Kong.

Heather previously worked at The New York Times, where she was based in London and New Delhi, and covered mergers and acquisitions, high-flying bankers, the private equity boom, and terrorism.

In 2011, she co-founded and ran India Ink, the paper’s first-ever country specific news journal, which provided more in-depth news and analysis of the world’s largest democracy and of India’s global diaspora. India Ink grew to a monthly audience of close to one million unique visitors and substantially expanded the paper’s readership in India.

Before the Times, Heather was the banking editor at BusinessWeek, where she covered the perils of the big bank business model and the danger of banks’ expansion into risky lending, corruption on Wall Street, and a post-9/11 New York. She began writing about banking and finance as a reporter with the Daily Deal and American Banker.
