About

I’ve been a journalist for about a decade. During this time I’ve held staff positions with various beats including science, energy, pharma, commodities and mergers & acquisitions. I have also published articles and investigations on human rights issues with several major news organisations.

Written work been published by The Guardian, The Washington Post, New York Times, The Observer, The Telegraph, The Independent, Huffington Post, Rappler, Forbes, New Internationalist, Your Middle East, The Financial Times’ This is Africa, Global Voices and others.

In 2018 I completed a Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) reporting fellowship, focusing on human trafficking and migrant rights. My resulting project, which was on mothers and stateless children living in hiding in the Gulf, was published by the Guardian.

In 2020, I was invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts, which it said was in recognition for my reporting on global human rights issues.

I travel often and have reported from the UK, US, UAE, Senegal, Rwanda, the West Bank, South Africa, Tanzania, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Norway, Thailand, Nepal, Seychelles and Jordan.

I love to dig into subjects, no matter how technical, and write stories on issues or events that aren’t known to the public.

If you’d like to commission me, or collaborate, over an article or project, please get in touch.

Also, if you have any tips or ideas for stories I should be looking into, I’d love to hear from you.
