Super magazine

Digital terror

Research, writing

2015

I used images and videos shared by the Islamic State on social media to report this visual article. Two parallel timelines link the group’s war strategy in Syria and Iraq with its strategy online, including digital campaigns of propaganda, recruitment, and terror.

I reported and eventually edited the How It Works section of Super magazine.

Quartz

Objects book

Research, writing

2017

I did research and writing for a book published by Quartz about the objects that power the global economy. I profiled a Japanese startup that wants to clean outer space, talked about biometrics with a woman born without fingerprints, profiled an Australian company that wants to mine the seabed, researched iconic political selfies, and ranked passports according to access given to global cities.
