Freelance journalist and writer

Contact Me

I am a freelance journalist and writer based in Berlin since January 2020, currently focusing on feature writing and investigative journalism, mainly about Europe. I am the co-initiator and the coordinator of the cross-border project Cities for Rent: Investigating Corporate Landlords Across Europe, which in 2022 won the European Press Prize Innovation Award, received an honourable mention at the IJ4EU Impact Award and was nominated to the Sigma Awards for data journalism. Before moving to Berlin, I was successively based in Nairobi, Istanbul and Barcelona. I have reported from more than 20 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East; and my writing has appeared in Foreign Policy magazine, Al Jazeera, New Statesman, El País, elDiario.es, Internazionale, USA Today, Information and Expresso, among other media outlets.

From March 2019 to June 2022, I also worked with Arena for Journalism in Europe, a non-profit foundation promoting cross-border collaborative journalism, where I lead the Arena Housing Project, an open collaborative network for journalists and researchers working on housing, and which launched and hosted the Cities for Rent Investigation. In the last years, I’ve also worked with AlgorithmWatch and Eticas Foundation, organisations that research the use of algorithmic systems that affect public life, and Tactical Tech, which investigates how digital technologies impact society and individual autonomy. And in 2017 and 2018 I worked on a journalistic project about citizen political activism, democracy and human rights in Europe thanks to an Open Society Fellowship.
