I am a journalist, academic and author based in Glasgow, Scotland. I began writing professionally when still an undergrad student studying modern languages in Berlin, after which I went on to become an international reporter and correspondent in Northern Europe. At the same time I have pursued a career as a media and journalism studies academic.

I studied for my PhD at the University of Edinburgh and as a guest researcher and research fellow in Uppsala, Sweden. Both during and after my PhD I worked as a features and news journalist around the Nordic and Baltic region in particular, before taking up my current role at the University of Glasgow where I teach Sociology and International Journalism. I am also a fellow of the Carson Center at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich and Guest Researcher at Malmö University in Sweden.
