Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Early on, thanks to my upbringing, I was exposed to an international environment and enjoyed a markedly humanistic education, with an emphasis on classical literature but also modern languages, and contemporary art.
I obtained my Master's degree in Philosophy and am now a PhD. candidate with a research interest in Ethics for a Global Civil Society. However, a degree in Journalism and a post-grad Master's in International Relations & Diplomacy is what really put me on the road to be a versatile Research Journalist committed to Peace Journalism and a record in research on Human Right's issues.
As for recent times, I am especially happy that I obtained a chance to branch out into TV News Broadcasting.
Please list the countries and/or regions in which you (or your organization) have direct and significant expertise
The geopolitical interest area that I am working in at present is the Middle East & N´Africa.
Before, I used to research for projects with an in depth single country focus, for example Iraq, Bahrain, Turkey, and Greece.
However, this time it is full immersion into the interrelated dynamics of the current revolutionary movements, in addition to covering news from the Security Council and Missions of the United Nations in regards with the region, in particular the peace process in the Middle East.
Besides, I have had an in depth experience with research on very specific topics regarding the Tibetan issue and the PRC's approach to conflict resolution. At some point I spent several months doing research in the Himalayas (India, Tibet, Nepal).
What is your current country of residence (or location of your organization)?
What is your current job (and organization) and/or where and what field are you studying?
I am a Research Journalist at the U.N. Headquarters.
How many years professional experience do you have ?
Which Languages do you speak Proficiently? (note we can not list all languages, only some major world languages or ones related to conflict regions)
French, German, Portugese, Russian, Spanish
Which are your primary sectoral areas of expertise (or the primary sectoral areas of your organization) ?
Diplomacy, Human Rights, Media
Which are your primary skills areas(or the primary skill areas of your organization)?
Communication, Information Technology, Research
What are some of your current areas of research (if any)?
At present, the Middle East and Maghreb.
Furthermore, I am preparing an research project on environmental policies in relation with ethnic migration in select rural areas in Continental Asia.
Both are fascinating and very challenging, yet necessary areas of research, especially for advocating human rights.
If appropriate feel free to list several of your (or your organization's) publications
My publications include authoring chapters of annual reports for research institutions such as the International Press Institute, the Latino Commission on HIV/AIDS, and a couple of Human Rights' organizations.
