Based in Brussels, I cover the EU and general European news for The Independent, TIME, Monocle magazine and others, as well as writing features on travel, food & drink and the arts. My areas of expertise include foreign policy, migration, human rights, the rise of the far right, and security and defence. I am also the author of the critically-acclaimed book about the refugee crisis, Cast Away: Stories of Survival from Europe's Refugee Crisis.

My 13 years’ experience covering world affairs includes two years as The Independent’s Deputy Foreign Editor, four years with AFP as a Staff Correspondent in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Southeast Asia, and freelance work in Europe, Latin America and Asia.

I am also available for radio and television interviews, and regularly comment on European affairs for outlets including the BBC, Monocle 24, France 24, CBC and ABC Australia. TV and web production experience includes freelance work at CNN and Channel 4 News.
