On the Refugee Beat:

I’ve mostly been covering the Middle East since 2011, which quickly meant reporting on refugees. First, the situation of Syrians in the neighboring countries, and then the stories of Syrians coming to Germany. In 2015, I was covering the situation on the Greek islands of Kos and Lesbos. I also followed refugees, mostly from Syria and Iraq, on their way from Greece to their final destinations via the Balkans.
