CORAL MURPHY MARCOS

Headshot.jpg

I’m a student at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and a freelance reporter from Puerto Rico. I've written for publications in English and Spanish, including The New York Times, The Guardian, Esquire, El País, National Public Radio, The Nation, and others.

I completed a year-long stint as the David Carr business fellow at the New York Times in 2022. I dug into tax incentives in Puerto Rico that were leading to gentrification, reported on the struggles of delivery workers in New York, and investigated the effects of inflation on American consumers.  

I’ve reported on business for USA TODAY, breaking news for The Guardian, and music for National Public Radio. For the Center for Investigative Journalism in Puerto Rico, I wrote about the disproportionate effects of the pandemic for Puerto Ricans. The project was featured in The City and Latino USA. 


My reporting has taken me across different states and territories in the U.S., from a community boxing center in the South Bronx to the mountainous town of Adjuntas, Puerto Rico. For The Guardian, I wrote about the surge of aggressive tourists in Puerto Rico during the pandemic. For USA TODAY, I analyzed the pay gaps in low-wage occupations, as well as how vaccine misinformation was targeting Hispanic communities.

I graduated from the University of Puerto Rico with a degree in Journalism, where I was editor-in-chief of Pulso Estudiantil, the university's newspaper. Shortly after graduating, I worked as a reporting intern for Bloomberg. Email me at coral_murphy[at]berkeley[dot]com.
