I'm a reporter covering the Middle East for The Independent, based in Beirut.

Before that I worked at the Associated Press in London and New York.

I have degrees from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I was a scholarship Fellow at the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism, and Oxford University.

Things I like learning and writing about include the refugee crisis and migration more generally; current obsessions are cybersecurity stories and anything to do with Cuba.

I'm from Barry, on the South Welsh coast.
