I'm a writer and editor based in New York, where I work at the Economist Intelligence Unit and focus on technology and healthcare.

Until recently, I wrote freelance, covering current affairs and American culture for a range of media outlets. My articles appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian, Al Jazeera America, Salon.com, the Huffington Post, the Chronicle of Higher Education, strategy+business, Prospect magazine, Forbes Woman, the Daily Telegraph, the Erotic Review, the Irish Times, the Irish Sunday Independent, the Irish Echo and the Irish Voice. I wrote a regular business feature for the Irish Echo (not available online).

I sowed some wild oats before entering the field of journalism, completing a masters and a doctorate in ancient Greek literature at Oxford University. For couple of years I taught full-time at King's College London and I co-authored a book called The Philosopher's Banquet for Oxford University Press that came out last year.

Then, however, I decided to move into journalism. I got a scholarship to study cultural reporting and criticism at New York University and headed to New York, which is where I've stayed ever since.
