About 

  • Hu is an American journalist based in New York City. She guides global digital news coverage, with special responsibilities for the Americas.

    Previously, Hu was the geopolitics editor for Quartz, where she led two different teams to win the first-place Philip Meyer Award for investigative journalism, and a Malofiej infographics prize for data visualization.

    In 2017, Hu created the hardcover book "The Objects that Power the Global Economy" with co-editor Lauren Brown. Published by Quartz, it was reviewed by Wired as a book that "makes you look smart, refined, and also like you have an aesthetic appreciation for beautiful objects."

    Before coming to New York, Hu was the editor of Italian magazine COLORS, a print magazine about globalization in four languages. During her tenure, the magazine's editorial installations were shown at the Design Museum London and the Perugia International Journalism Festival.

    She holds degrees from the Sorbonne and Wellesley College. Her editorial work has also been shown at Paris Photo and the Venice Biennale.
