BA, Georgetown University, Washington, DC. MA in Print Journalism, Goldsmiths University, London. For more than a decade, I have worked for leading new organizations across Europe, including as a Trainee Writer for Reuters in Paris, a reporter and editor for The Times of London, an on-camera correspondent for Al Jazeera English, and now as a presenter and news anchor for DW.
With DW since:
