I have covered political change, conflict and rights across more than a dozen countries in the Middle East and Europe, working on news and investigations.
I was based in Ramallah, Palestine for three years between 2014 and 2017, writing for several international media outlets and working as an editor.
Based between Rome and London for the following three years, I regularly filed stories for Deutsche Welle and Al Jazeera English, as well as worked as a senior producer for the Qatar-based network covering major political stories including Brexit and the 2019 European Parliament elections.
I cover breaking news, humanitarian crises, migration and climate change. Most recently, I have covered the Ukraine refugee crisis on the border with Poland, the UN climate negotiations, and the 2023 Turkey earthquake.
My stories have appeared on Foreign Policy, The New Humanitarian, NPR, The New Arab, and Marie Claire magazine, among others. I have also worked as a radio/podcast reporter for DW and the BBC, and worked as a field producer with international TV crews.
I hold a masters degree in Global Media from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.
I'm the recipient of various grants from the International Women's Media Foundation and One World Media. In 2021, my work on modern slavery between the UK and the Gulf won a Human Trafficking Foundation award for best investigative news article. In 2014, I was one of three finalists of the Anna Lindh/Thomson Reuters Mediterranean Journalist Awards for my coverage of the Syrian refugee crisis.
I am currently a media fellow at the Global Aliance Against Trafficking in Women.
Besides English and Italian, I have good working knowledge of Spanish and French. I speak survival Arabic, and I am trying to live up to my B1 certificate in Turkish.
