Currently, at, a public policy-focused startup led by former Economist Group executives, I help shape editorial strategy, produce the 'Humanizing Cities' column, and contribute stories on topics ranging from care homes to food security to bike sharing.

For the Rockefeller Foundation, I produce reports, to date on lead abatement, on AI and society, on AI Governance, and on 17 Rooms (the Sustainable Development Goals), the latter with the Brookings Institution. There I covered convenings, counseled teams on capturing insights from meetings, proposed templates and digital designs, and edited essays from influential contributors.

And at EY I authored two chapters on synthetic biology, and on new economic metrics, for Ernst & Young's Megatrends report. There I conducted extensive research, quantitative analysis and interviews with experts. The report, produced by the firm's internal think tank, EYQ, helps inform business and government leaders' decisions based on seismic changes today and a decade away.
