Neil Bedi

I am an investigative reporter at the Tampa Bay Times. I focus on watchdog journalism involving companies and individuals who harm others in search for profit. I use traditional reporting, data analysis and interactive digital presentation in my stories.

Before becoming a journalist, I was a technology analyst with the Corporate and Investment Bank at JPMorgan Chase.
