I’m an assistant editor and leader writer at the Guardian, where I contribute to the Long Read and Opinion sections. I’ve written about economics, politics and culture for the Times Literary Supplement, the New Statesman, Kinfolk Magazine, the Baffler and the Architectural Review. I’ve also contributed to radio, including the BBC World at One.

In the not-so-distant past, I worked at the New Statesman, as a reporter in Washington D.C. covering antitrust and monopolies, and as a researcher at Rethinking Economics.
