I’m a journalist focused on climate, conflict and migration who has appeared in The Atlantic, BBC, CBS, National Geographic, New Scientist, The New York Times, TIME and others. Formerly a Moscow correspondent for the Guardian, the Telegraph and VICE News, I’ve reported from a town invaded by polar bears, the only floating nuclear power plant and the coldest permanently inhabited place on earth.
I broke international stories including the second Skripal poisoner’s identity, the deployment of Wagner mercenaries to Libya and the deadly 2016 anthrax outbreak from thawing permafrost.
I’ve been honored with Scripps environmental journalism and Logan nonfiction fellowships.
