Lydia DePillis is a reporter for Wonkblog at the Washington Post. Previously, she was a staff writer at The New Republic and real estate columnist at the Washington City Paper, where she wrote its award-winning Housing Complex blog. This site’s blog is from a trip to India in the summer of 2012.
DePillis is a native of Seattle, Washington and attended Columbia College in New York City, where she spent most of her time blogging. In between and immediately after, she interned for Real Change News, Greenwire, the New York Observer, and Slate magazine.
She likes to take pictures, but isn’t quite good enough to call herself a photojournalist.
