Preeti Aroon

Preeti Aroon, copy chief at Foreign Policy, copy-edits articles to ensure that authors aren’t confusing “its” and “it’s,” referring to someone named “Obama bin Laden,” mistaking “Elliott Abrams” for “Eliot Cohen,” misspelling “Srebrenica,” or inserting two (or more! ) spaces after periods. Aroon has strong feelings about comma splices. Formerly a copy editor and contributing columnist for the Lexington Herald-Leader, Aroon holds a master's degree in public policy from Duke University and a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Kentucky.
