Freelance Journalist and Blogger
I'm a freelance journalist based in Sofia, Bulgaria. I cover politics, society and travel across Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
My work has been published in the New York Times, AFP, France 24 and Slate. I write in both French and English.
In 2017, I was awarded the Social Journalism Prize, a prestigious French award, for an investigation into buyers' clubs for Hepatitis C medication.
Formerly based in India, Cuba and France.
