Preeti Upadhyaya has been named the new technology reporter at the Silicon Valley Business Journal, an American City Business Journals newspaper.

Upadhyaya writes, “I’m an LA transplant, although no stranger to NorCal. Since graduating from UC Davis in 2009, I’ve lived in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and London.

“I cut my journalistic teeth at NPR, managing interns around the country as the social media voice of NPR’s Intern Edition blog and script editing and researching for Morning Edition.

“In back-to-back internships, I headed next to American Public Media, where I ran point and produced a conversation with Khan Academy’s Sal Khan on education gaps in American schools.

“More recently, I spent a very damp summer in London, reporting on the 2012 Olympics and European markets.”
