Neil Bedi

I am a reporter and developer at the Tampa Bay Times, working under the data and investigations team. I report stories, analyze data, develop news applications, design digital presentations, and occasionally take photographs.

I’ve reported on a power plant accident that burned five to death, the starkly different circumstances in which black and white people are shot by police , the decades-old flooding problems in Florida’s largest city, and more.

Before pursuing journalism, I was a technology analyst with the Corporate & Investment Bank at J.P. Morgan & Chase.
