She has reported for The World from Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and her stories have been honored by the Overseas Press Club, the Society of Environmental Journalists, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma at Columbia. She was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard in 2005-2006.
