Freelance journalist and author

I work on deeply reported features and multimedia stories. My interests include animals, the ocean, climate change, the brain and mind – however, I cover stories across science, health and the environment. I'm open to editorial commissions.

My articles have appeared in National GeographicNew Statesman and Republik, among other magazines. Before going freelance in September 2021, I was a reporter at WIRED magazine in London and the Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung, where I wrote articles and produced videos. Three of my children's books have been published.

I write in both English and German and also speak French, Spanish and Portuguese. 

Currently, I'm also working part-time as a climate reporter at the magazine Republik and as an editor at SWI, the international service of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation.
