Nilo Tabrizy joins The Washington Post as a visual forensics reporter


Announcement from: Director of Video Micah Gelman, Visual Forensics Senior Producer Nadine Ajaka and Visual Forensics Senior Producer Elyse Samuels:

We are delighted to announce that Nilo Tabrizy is joining The Washington Post as a visual forensics reporter, bringing global reporting experience and video production expertise to the team.

Before joining The Post, Nilo worked as a video journalist at the New York Times, where she focused on Iran coverage. She has reported on the lethal crackdown by security forces in Zahedan, analyzed video from the current protests, and covered corruption in Iran’s banking system that fueled the 2018 nationwide protests. She has also worked on visual investigations that analyzed the use of force in protests in ChileColombia and Philadelphia. The visual investigation in Philadelphia led to an apology from the police chief within hours of publication and a moratorium on the department’s use of tear gas months later.

Outside of open-source investigations at the New York Times, Nilo has covered abortion access, race and policing, and the search for unmarked graves at Canada’s residential schools. Earlier in her career, Nilo worked as a producer and correspondent for Vice News, focusing on substance abuse and harm reduction.

Born in Tehran and raised in Iran and Canada, Nilo received a bachelor’s degree in political science and French from the University of British Columbia. She has a master’s degree in science journalism from Columbia University.

In her free time, Nilo dabbles in Persian calligraphy and directing music videos. She will be based in New York and starts Dec. 12. Please join us in welcoming Nilo to The Post.
