For her work she has spent five days on a migrant rescue boat on the Mediterranean sea; written about volcano-monitoring in Indonesia; travelled to refugee camps in Bangladesh, Greece, Croatia and Germany; covered the rise of micro-dosing LSD in Silicon Valley; and written about the politics of memory in Europe. She also regularly writes culture reviews for The Economist and other publications.
