I'm a freelance journalist and author, specialising in deeply-reported features and multimedia storytelling. My personal interests include animals, the ocean, climate change, the brain and mind – however, I cover stories across science, health and the environment.
My articles have appeared in National Geographic,
New 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.
I write in English and German and am fluent in French. I can also speak Spanish and Portuguese. I have lived in Mozambique and reported stories from Madagascar and Sri Lanka.
Multimedia stories are fun to produce: this interactive longform story about climate change in the Arctic was published on nzz.ch.
I have also recorded podcasts and authored three non-fiction books for children.
Currently, I also work part-time as an editor at SWI swissinfo.ch, the international service of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation.
