Lauren is a business reporter at the Telegraph, after a two-year stint working in New York (note: so please excuse anything written in US-style – they got to me eventually). She has written for the Wall Street Journal, The Times, The Atlantic, Quartz, The Huffington Post, City A.M., Mic, Tablet Magazine, The Jewish Daily Forward and The Jewish Chronicle among others.

Lauren graduated with honors from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, where she was awarded the Richard T. Baker prize for outstanding work in her newspaper feature writing class, the Journalism Editorial prize for an opinion article on not teaching Dickens in schools, and the prestigious Henry N. Taylor prize, which is awarded each year to the international student “who has best demonstrated the qualities of a superior journalist.”

She studied Theology at the University of Cambridge, where she was elected to be president of the Cambridge Union Society. (Check out this video to see the kind of speakers she hosted.) Several events she organized received international media coverage, including debates on pornography, the British government and the Muslim face veil, as well as an exclusive talk by Julian Assange.
