The Washington Post
I worked on the series examining the state of press freedom with Dana Priest, concentrating on the story of Khadija Ismayilova in Azerbaijan.
New York Times – Contributing reporter
I helped New York Times reporters with reporting in Hungary – gathered background information, identified and contacted sources, translated during interviews. A selection of the stories I worked on:
They picked up and published my story on the Hungarian health care system written for Transitions Online. – “Low pay at home, plus poor prospects and conditions, spur hundreds of physicians each year to seek work elsewhere in the EU.”
I wrote features stories and produced audio slide shows for TOL. Many of my stories are behind a paywall, but I can send the saved screen grabs of them by request. A selection of stories that are not behind the paywall:
Hard Cases – a feature story on a school in downtown Budapest that gives hope to high-school dropouts.
Teaching one history, living another – how teachers of high school history had to adapt to a changes curriculum after the Iron Curtain fell
When news broke that six Hungarian government officials were banned from the U.S. based on corruption charges, editor of the FCPA blog, Richard L. Cassin asked me to explain what is happening. FCPA Blog is an important hub of news and analysis on corruption.
