I am a seasoned, highly capable and passionate journalist. Originally from Germany, I have been working in the UK since 2013. For WELT N24, one of the major national news outlets in Germany, I reported on banking and the financial industry, fintech, manufacturing, start-ups and energy.
Besides my work as a UK Business Correspondent, I focused on business and finance in China, with particular emphasis on topics like RMB-internationalisation, Made in China 2025 and foreign firms in China. Prior to my job in London, I was based in Shanghai in China. As I still held a visa for China, I continued to travel the country, with three to four dispatchments to Shanghai and other cities per year.
From September 1st, 2016, I am covering corporate finance for the Wall Street Journal in London. As a News Editor, I report on UK-based companies as well as Continental European firms. China is supposed to remain part of my beat as well, with one or two dispatchments per year.
I have more than ten years of professional work experience in journalism in Europe and Asia. Thanks to a rigid training at Axel Springer Academy in Berlin and the ifp-institute in Munich, I am skilled at working with limited timeframes, challenging storylines and interview partners from diverse backgrounds.
