My name is Hamza Shaban and I’m a tech and business reporter for The Washington Post, based in DC.
I was recently named a 2019-2020 Knight-Bagehot Fellow at Columbia University.
I previously covered tech policy for BuzzFeed News.
I’ve also written for The New Yorker, Slate, New York Magazine, VICE, The Atlantic, Esquire, The New Republic, The Baffler, The Verge, Gizmodo, Motherboard, GigaOm, PandoDaily, The Awl, The New Inquiry, The Root, Cyborgology, and The American Prospect.
My stories at the Post cover a broad range of business and tech issues that are tied to the national economy, Silicon Valley, and Capitol Hill. They tend to focus on data privacy, regulatory battles between the tech industry and Washington, as well as breaking business news.
