I'm a political journalist covering technology and working as Politico's Artificial Intelligence Correspondent in Berlin. In that role, I'm responsible for our European coverage about AI. I also anchor Politico's fortnightly AI: Decoded newsletter. (You can sign up here.)
I joined Politico in 2015 as a political reporter and spent the first years covering German politics before becoming AI correspondent in January 2018, as the first reporter at a mainstream publication assigned to the beat.
Prior to joining Politico, I worked as a staff reporter for Spiegel and DW (Deutsche Welle). Other publications included Deutschlandradio, the New York Times, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and the Intercept.
Born and raised in Germany, I lived in the United States for several years, one of them as a Fulbright scholar. In 2015, I was awarded with the U.S. Foreign Press Association’s national award. In the same year, I moved back to my hometown Berlin.
I'm a graduate of the mid-career M.A. program in political journalism at Columbia University’s Journalism School and I hold another Master’s degree from New York University as well as a B.A. degree from Berlin's Humboldt University. I'm also a graduate of the 18-months journalism fellowship (Volontariat) at DW, Germany’s international public broadcaster.
