I'm a Berlin-based political journalist covering technology and how it impacts democracy. Since February 2021, I am the Chief Technology Correspondent at DW (Deutsche Welle), Germany's international public broadcaster.
Previously, I was Politico's Artificial Intelligence Correspondent, overseeing the publication's European coverage about AI. 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. Other places where I have published include 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.
