I've dedicated the past six years to conflict and humanitarian reporting in the Middle East, with particular focus on women's issues. I've worked extensively in Iraq - where I was based for three years - and Syria, covering the rise and fall of ISIS. I've also reported from Venezuela, Cuba, South Sudan, southern Europe and the Gulf.
My words and images have appeared in leading print and online publications, including The Telegraph, The Economist, Thomson Reuters Foundation, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Times and Al Jazeera English, among others.
I researched and wrote the 2015 Lonely Planet Iraq chapter and carried out region-wide reporting and research for The Guardian’s Latin America Now series as well as The New York Times upfront. In 2017 I was nominated for the XCity Award for my work in Venezuela, where I focused on the effects of the crisis on children, women's reproductive rights and mental health.
I was based in the UAE from 2018 to 2019, where I worked as an editor on the foreign desk of a local publication. During that time, I also hosted weekly podcasts and worked in front and behind the camera. In April 2019 I returned to freelancing and have been on the move since.
