I have spent the past ten years reporting and producing news and documentaries from Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. My work often focuses on humanitarian issues, particularly linked to conflict and its aftermath. In 2011, I experienced firsthand the devastating impact of conflict when my partner was seriously injured while we were filming in Libya. We were lucky - he was evacuated and, after spending eight months in hospital and undergoing countless operations, has made a full recovery. But what about the people who cannot leave, the people who are left behind? These are questions that still resonate with me and have impacted my reporting ever since.
