I report from Afghanistan for The Guardian, The Economist, Foreign Policy, The New Republic and more. I do regular TV live-crosses and phone beepers for CNN, Sky News, CBS Radio, CBC, Deutsche Welle, TRT World and more. I have lived in Afghanistan since June 2014, after moving here from Iran where I spent two years. I have a Master's degree from Columbia Journalism School in New York.
