I am a journalist.
I write a column about big data for the Guardian and am always on the lookout for a good technology or business story. Let me know if you come across anything that looks cool – or a little bit suspect.
I have interned and freelanced for a number of publications, including Quartz, the Guardian, the Times, the Telegraph, BuzzFeed and the Independent, as well as other magazines and newspapers. I also previously wrote a column for the Muslim News about French politics and human rights.
I was named Young Journalist of the Year at the Muslim Writers Awards 2011 for articles about ethnic discrimination and for my balanced reporting on the student protests against the trebling of tuition fees. I exposed the fact a student had created a makeshift molotov cocktail (weeks before national papers) and also wrote about the experience of being "kettled" (penned in) by police.
In 2013, I was shortlisted for the Guardian's Student Media Awards under the category of Digital Journalist of the Year.
I was recently awarded the Scott Trust bursary to fund my master's degree in Newspaper Journalism at City University London (Newspaper Journalism), which I am currently undertaking. I completed my undergraduate at the University of Warwick (French with International Studies).
