Travelli will begin in January, based in Delhi.
Since 2013, Travelli has been writing and editing from Delhi for The Economist. He joined The Economist in 2004, based in New York, then he moved to Hong Kong and then to Delhi.
The region captured Travelli’s interest in the 1990s, during an academic fellowship to India and Pakistan. Two years later, he returned to Delhi as a freelancer. He joined ABC News as a researcher and writer, and then had a long stint as a field producer in Kuwait.
Be sure to congratulate Travelli on Twitter.
