Since 2015 I am a freelancer. Primarily specialized in medicine and healthcare, I have experience on human rights and digital security. Complex themes and controversial issues are my favorites. I am a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the chairwoman of the Swiss organization for investigative journalism investigativ.ch and an advisory board member of IRPI and journalismfund.eu. I support the Global Network for Investigative Journalism (GIJN) activities. With Catherine Riva or on my own I work as a tutor and trainer.

Nata a Pescara nel 1972, sono cresciuta a Roma e vivo a Berna, Svizzera. Ho iniziato a lavorare come giornalista nel 1994. Dal 2002 al 2015 ho lavorato per Falò RSI e per Patti chiari RSI, programmi d’inchiesta della Televisione pubblica svizzera di lingua italiana (RSI) e per Rundschau della TV pubblica svizzera di lingua tedesca (SRF). Dal 2015 sono indipendente. Negli anni mi sono specializzata in salute pubblica e medicina. Ma mi sono occupata anche di bufale mediatiche, diritti umani e sorveglianza. I progetti collaborativi mi appassionano, soprattutto se varcano le frontiere. Faccio parte de The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), sono presidente dell’organizzazione svizzera per il giornalismo d’inchiesta investigativ.ch e dell’advisory board di Investigative Reporting Project Italy (IRPI) e di Journalism Fund.

Ho fondato insieme a Catherine Riva un’organizzazione senza scopo di lucro per fare inchiesta attorno a salute pubblica e medicina: Re-check.ch. Insieme a Catherine Riva o da sola insegno etica e tecniche del giornalismo d’inchiesta. Parlo inglese, francese, tedesco. In questa pagina più informazioni.

Your Man in the Public Gallery – The Assange Hearing Day 3 - In yesterday's proceedings in court, the prosecution adopted arguments so stark and apparently unreasonable I have been fretting on how to write them up in a way that does not seem like https://t.co/Fd56lIUVcM

Summary of #Assange extradition case today: the accused cannot “hear” the arguments and the Judge refuses to fix it: he just wants to sit next to his lawyers. Globally reasonable. She refused. She even threatened to extend the process. Due process? Or punishment by process?
