Daffodil Altan

Daffodil Altan is an Emmy-nominated documentary producer, print journalist, and occasional radio reporter based at UC Berkeley's Investigative Reporting Program.

Most recently, she produced the Frontline/Univision documentary, “Rape on the Night Shift,” a
film, radio and print collaboration which investigated the
hidden reality of rape on the job for women janitors in the U.S. The
film won the Investigative Reporters and Editors award for best
Broadcast/Video in 2016, led to the passage of a new state law in
California, and was nominated for two national Emmys. Previously she
was a producer at Reveal for the Center for Investigative Reporting,
where her multimedia reporting on teen solitary confinement at Rikers
Island earned her an Emmy nomination and was part of a wave of renewed
coverage that led to the banning of solitary confinement for teens at
the New York City jail. She has a master's degree in journalism from UC Berkeley.
