Organization: 
Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
Country or Region: 

Nathalie is the associate director of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. The Center's mission is to promote in-depth coverage of international affairs, focusing on topics that have been under-reported, mis-reported - or not reported at all. The Center’s model combines quality reporting, comprehensive media dissemination and educational initiatives to raise awareness of critical global issues that have been largely ignored in the American media. As associate director of the Pulitzer Center, Nathalie helps oversee the development of the organization, manage proposals and reporting projects, and is the managing producer on all video and interactive narrative projects. The last two multi-media projects Heroes of HIV: HIV in the Caribbean and Hope: Living and Loving with HIV in Jamaica recently received honorable mentions in the Knight-Batten Awards for Innovations in Journalism. Nathalie also oversees the design of their website, educational outreach programs, and the development of outreach strategies for reporting projects.

Nathalie has worked nationally and internationally on documentaries, educational, political and commercial productions as a producer, director, and editor. She has also worked as a consultant for the United Nations and as a project manager and media specialist for the University of Pennsylvania's Literacy Research Center. She received a Master’s degree from the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University where she concentrated in international security policy with a regional concentration in the Middle East, and co-founded and directed the Media and Communications in War and Peace student group (now MIC).
