I am a staff journalist for The Economist and former Tokyo Bureau Chief, currently on maternity leave and still in Tokyo. I am interested, and write about, everything from politics and business to social affairs. I was previously the newspaper's Middle East Bureau Chief. I have taken part in panel debates and phone-ins on numerous radio stations including the BBC and NPR. I have written pieces for other outlets including the New York Review of Books and London Review of Books.
