Alex is currently Senior News Editor at Insider Inc., leading the London office’s breaking news team and serving as a liaison at handoff meetings with the publication’s New York editor-in-chief. During her five years at Insider, she also worked as a reporter specializing in breaking news, geopolitical analysis and China.

Alex began her career as an editorial staffer for HuffPost in New York. She is a graduate of Georgetown University with a BS in Foreign Service and City, University of London with an MA in Interactive Journalism. In addition to English, she speaks Cantonese as her mother tongue and is fluent in both French and Mandarin.

Alex will start working at the London hub on September 26th.
