Hello! I’m Kait.
I am an award-winning reporter at The Capitol Forum, where I write about competition and antitrust legislation in the EU.
I previously covered policy and politics at POLITICO Europe in Brussels. Prior to that, I worked as a reporter and editor for five years in both staff and freelance roles. My work has been published by Al-Jazeera English, BBC, The Guardian, NPR, VICE and Deutsche Welle. I also was the politics editor at Cafébabel, an online European magazine, for a year.
My investigation into water pollution in southern China for The Guardian won a silver medal in environmental reporting from the UN Correspondents’ Association in 2017. My story about genetic testing for Down Syndrome received an award for science reporting from the World Health Summit and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting in 2016. I have also held four media fellowships, including with the International Women’s Media Foundation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
I am also a public speaker and panel moderator. I have spoken at conferences on topics like journalism, immigration and politics in the US, Canada, Europe and China for clients such as the European Commission, Lewis & Clark College and the Fritt Ord Foundation.
