I’m a journalist based in Paris.
I’m also the founder and editor-in-chief of The Dial, a new magazine of international writing.
My work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The London Review of Books, The Guardian, and The New York Review of Books, where I worked as an editor for several years. My reporting has been featured on NPR and France 24, and I’m a regular commentator on the BBC.
In 2019, my article “The End of Atlanticism: has Trump killed the ideology that won the cold war?” won the European Press Prize (the European Pulitzer). I used the prize money to create The Ballot, a two-year online magazine about international politics. We published writers in over 40 countries, everywhere from Azerbaijan to Ukraine.
I teach journalism at Sciences Po and regularly speak at schools and universities. My work has been taught at Harvard Law School and cited in an amicus brief to the Supreme Court; it has been translated into Polish, French and Portuguese. My article “Criminalizing a Constitutional Right” won a 2022 Front Page Award. In 2021, I was an Atlantik-Brücke Young Leader. Last spring, I was the Milena Jesenská Fellow at the Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen in Vienna. My reporting on the consequences of France’s antiterrorism laws was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize. My interactive feature on the sounds of Notre Dame–created with the New York Times graphics team–was a finalist for the 2023 Excellence in in Immersive and Emerging Technology Storytelling award. I am also an advisory editor at The Paris Review. Here is an interview with me about some of my reporting.
Before becoming a journalist, I studied Classics at Harvard and Oxford. I speak French, German and Spanish. I also read Latin and Ancient Greek, though not as often as I’d like.
