I’m a journalist currently based in the UK, writing and editing for national and international publications with a focus on women and international affairs.
I’m deputy editor of New Humanist, a quarterly magazine covering current affairs, human rights, philosophy and ethics, and science and tech.
I also work regularly with the Telegraph, as a freelance commissioning editor and occasional reporter on the foreign news desk; Prospect, the UK’s leading current affairs monthly magazine, where I was an editor for several years; and Narratively, where I commission and edit long-form narrative non-fiction as a guest editor.
I was formerly deputy editor of Devex, working with a team of reporters around the world to cover international development and humanitarian aid. I continue to serve as membership editor in a part-time capacity, leading on editorial content and strategy to drive subscriptions, including news, features, analysis, events, newsletters and more.
I started out as a trainee reporter at Bloomberg News.
As an editor, I’ve worked on investigations into UN agencies, sexual misconduct and more. Many of these stories have been used in parliamentary briefings and reports, particularly around foreign policy and abuses in the aid sector.
I also write long-form features and news reports. My reporting has taken me to Brussels, Germany, Armenia, Taiwan and Mozambique among other places. I’ve interviewed senior diplomats and Nobel prize winners, as well as app-coding nuns and atheist priests.
I often speak on TV and radio, including LBC, BBC and London Live and have moderated panel debates hosted by the United Nations, the European Commission and Facebook.
I was selected as a fellow of the International Journalists’ Programme in 2016, during which I was based at Die Tageszeitung newspaper in Berlin. I have also lived and worked in London, Edinburgh, and Barcelona.
