In January 2017, Alice worked and reported from Somalia and Ethiopia, where she was one of the first journalists on the ground to cover the drought and, specifically investigate its impact on internally displaced women. She also reported on young Somali men's fight to end female-genital mutilation (FGM). She later moved to Beirut to report on environmental, social and political issues for The Daily Star (Lebanon). In July 2017, she reported from the South Sudan-Uganda border, where she investigated how refugees and locals were using green entrepreneurship to reduce conflict within host-communities. Alice has also reported on women's rights issues in Rajasthan, India and worked on various projects related to refugees and technology. In November 2016, for example, she chaired a panel discussion with Muzoon Almellehan from the Malala Foundation on education in refugee camps and technology at the WIRED 2016 Next Generation event.
Alice graduated with a Masters in Arabic and International Relations from the University of St Andrews in June 2016, where she specialised her research on the impact of war on water resources in Syria, and, in 2015, sex-trafficking in Iraq and Syria under ISIS. During her time studying, she worked closely with Chatham House’s Energy, Environment and Resources Department where she helped research reports and analyse data on the refugee energy crisis as part of the pioneering Moving Energy Initiative.
Born in Paris, she spent her childhood there before moving to London. Alice is fluent in English, French, Spanish and also speaks Arabic and (a little!) Persian.
