As a humanitarian journalist, I research and write features, news briefs and analysis on natural disasters, conflict, women’s health, immigration, poverty and other humanitarian issues.
I cover humanitarian crisis for specialized news agencies, such as the Humanitarian news and analysis IRIN. I worked for two years for the SE Asia IRIN bureau in Bangkok and I am currently reporting from Nigeria.
