Ulmer moving to India for Reuters
Alexandra Ulmer, a reporter for Reuters in Venezuela, is leaving South America and moving to India to cover that country for the wire service.
Ulmer has covered the opaque state oil company, often violent protests, and also frequently writes about health and social issues in Venezuela. She has also reported for Reuters in Argentina and Chile. Prior to that, she worked in the United States and her native Switzerland.
She speaks English, French, and Spanish. In 2011 she graduated from Brown University with a degree in international relations.
Reuters named her Reporter of the Year in 2015 “for breaking through the iron-clad offices of Venezuelan state oil firm PDVSA, and for a series of smart stories on how the economic crisis and food shortages have battered support for the socialist ruling party and hit the legacy of Hugo Chavez.”
