Rukmini Callimachi began covering terrorism in 2013 when she found thousands of internal al-Qaeda documents in the city of Timbuktu, Mali, providing a window into the terror group’s operations.
A New York Times foreign correspondent, Callimachi has become the go-to reporter on the stories behind the Islamic State. WIRED magazine called her “arguably the best reporter on the most important beat in the world.”
Callimachi’s captivating journalism combines the complicated inner-workings of ISIS and Al-Qaeda with the very real and often brutal impact of terrorist groups. Rukmini’s dedication to investigative journalism, to politics, and to human rights has garnered her numerous awards, including three Pulitzer nominations and the “Integrity in Journalism” prize for her coverage of how ISIS systematically enslaved women from the Yazidi minority.
As a speaker, Rukmini takes us inside the perilous world on which she has reported, combining her meticulous and dangerous research in the field with many of her own photographs for a riveting, factual narrative steeped in history, intrigue, human tragedy and resilience.
Before joining the New York Times in 2014, Callimachi worked for the Portland bureau of the Associated Press (AP) where she reported on New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. She covered 20 foreign countries for the AP and spent seven years in West Africa.

Nader Mousavizadeh advises some of the world’s leading corporations, financial institutions, and decision-makers in government, delivering actionable macro strategies and solutions.
The Co-CEO of Macro Advisory Partners and former CEO of Oxford Analytica, Mousavizadeh shares deep analytical judgments about how organizations can navigate the global shifts, risks and opportunities at the nexus of markets, politics, and policy.
For years Nader has been spotting the big trends and hidden risks far ahead of the news.
We are now seeing an acceleration of the forces of uncertainty and volatility that he predicted in his July 2011 column for Reuters, “Welcome to the Archipelago World,” a world with more divergence. Mousavizadeh wrote: “A fragmentation of power, capital and ideas is creating a new map of the world – with lasting implications for investors and policymakers alike.”
In his September 2015 column “The Weaponization of Everything,” he said that a new form of globalization was emerging – “more contested, more contingent, more prone to shocks and shifts from unimagined sources…Finance, technology, energy, law, education, science, trade and travel have all been turned into weapons in a new form of warfare.”
On November 14, 2016 Mousavizadeh said the election of Donald Trump represented “a material rupture in the macro environment,” a direct manifestation of the archipelago fragmentation thesis that he’s been talking about for the past six years.
