Jyoti Thottam Time S Asia bureau chief

June 11, 2008 12:06 IST

India-born Jyoti Thottam, Time magazine's senior editor, has been re-designated as the magazine's South Asia bureau chief.

Thottam will leave New York next month and relocate to New Delhi. Thottam, who lives with her husband and daughter in Brooklyn, was raised mostly in suburban Houston.

She came to Time from On magazine/Time Digital, and before that was a newspaper reporter in Queens and in Jacksonville, Florida.

She is the co-author of a play -- Interrogations -- based partly on her crime reporting in Queens.

Jyoti got her start as an intern at the Wall Street Journal and her writing has also appeared in the Believer and the Village Voice.

She graduated from Yale, where she studied religion and economics, and she also has a master's degree from Columbia, where she studied international affairs and learned Hindi.

All those skills were indispensable during the year she spent as a freelancer travelling around India after graduation.
