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.

We now have confirmation that two government officials reporting directly to @JosephMuscat_JM played a crucial role in covering up my mother's assassination. No wonder Muscat fought so hard to stop the public inquiry into the state's role in the murder. https://t.co/FUMhsi2TtC

Wow: Spanish prosecutors allege that the CIA used Trump mega-donor Sheldon Adelson's company as a go-between to receive info (read: surveillance) from a Spanish company it had enlisted to spy on Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange in the Ecuadorean embassy: https://t.co/g4swsnM3u3

„#Assange’s due process rights have been severely & systematically violated for 10 years at every stage of all proceedings in all jurisdictions. One year ago, I would not have believed that this is possible in democratic States such as the UK and Sweden.“ https://t.co/4JcZrBh7bY
