ABOUT ME

I'm a multi-award winning investigative journalist, with a decade's experience writing for some of the world's largest print and digital publications

 

I specialise in global gender issues, looking particularly closely at sexual exploitation in South / South East Asia and the systems that perpetuate the abuse of women in vulnerable communities.

I've recently reported from the Philippines, Bangladesh, Iraq, Cambodia, Nepal, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Armenia, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Benin, Laos and India, to name a few.

My work has taken me from the frontlines of the Mosul Offensive to the landmined fields of rural Sri Lanka. I have spent months reporting inside 'brothel villages' in Bangladesh, and weeks investigating on reproductive healthcare high up in the Nepali Himalayas. You can read some of my latest work here.

 

I am the Asia Correspondent for the Fuller Project for International Reporting and a Mentor for the Coalition of Women In Journalism

I have won AmnestyPPA and BSME Awards, and been shortlisted by One World Media Awards, Amnesty Media Awards, UNHCR Women On The Move Awards, AIDex Humanitarian and Development Awards and more.
 

I have contributed to publications including The Washington Post, The Guardian, Marie Claire, Esquire, ELLE, The Telegraph, COSMOPOLITAN, Grazia, Stylist and.

Prior to moving overseas, I was also the Acting Features Director at Marie Claire, and Features and Entertainment Editor of LOOK.
