Featured journalist: Amantha Perera
Today we are happy to highlight a freelancer as our featured journalist: Amantha Perera, a writer, multimedia journalist and photographer. He is a contributor to TIME, IPS, IRIN, and Reuters, among others -- and also a 2013 Ochberg Fellow with Columbia University!
Amantha's beats span everything from the military to energy to humanitarian aid, but for the moment he is concentrating on Sri Lanka's post conflict developments and the impact of extreme weather events in the Asian region. This focus is clear when looking through his impressive portfolio -- be sure to check out examples of his excellent coverage in such pieces as "Fears Grow of a Himalayan Tsunami as Glaciers Melt" or "War or Peace, Sri Lankan Women Struggle to Survive."
