Ahmed Shihab-Eldin

Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, News21 Flash producer, built the Columbia project's home page and its immigration timeline, and provided general assistance to the Columbia fellows.

Ahmed grew up in California, Kuwait, Egypt and Austria. He has most recently worked as a news producer for The New York Times and as a web producer for the PBS international documentary series, Wide Angle. His work has been featured in Frontline/World online, TimeOut, Washington Week and other blogs.

He graduated from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, where he now teaches as an adjunct professor for new media skills. He hopes to one day adopt a dog and produce a feature-length documentary film, but not necessarily on the same day. His family is originally from Palestine.
