I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Communication and Journalism and Programme Leader for MA Multimedia Journalism.

I was previously a producer and reporter at Sky News, where I specialised in foreign news, and later a video, radio and online journalist covering East and Central Africa. I have spent much of my career in Africa, both as a journalist and during two stints managing media relations for Save the Children. My news content has been used by the likes of Sky News, ITV News, Associated Press, Voice of America, Reuters, Al Jazeera and France 24.

I am a PhD candidate with research interests focused on the media framing of humanitarian crises. I am currently a Co-Investigator on Tie u Orja, a research and capacity building project aiming to strengthen disaster-preparedness among crisis communicators in Sierra Leone.
