A freelance investigative reporter, I cover East, West and Central Africa, with a particular focus on business, corruption, natural resources, land and social issues. My stories have been published in Paris Match, le Monde, IRIN News, Sydney Morning Herald, African Arguments, Journal de Montréal, Mongabay and others. I also train journalists in investigative methods for the Thomson Reuters Foundation and for non-profits such as the Natural Resource Governance Institute. I've studied economics at UTS in Sydney and development studies at the University of Oxford. I’m fluent in French, English and Hebrew and I get by in Spanish and Swahili. On good days, I can pretend to follow a conversation in German. Over the past decade, I've spent most of my time in Central and East Africa undertaking investigations for non-profits, such as the Forest Peoples Programme, FIDH, Global Witness and others.
