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'm also the author of Politico's fortnightly AI: Decoded newsletter. (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.
