Airlines & Travel Correspondent,

Joanna has spent the past four years covering politics and general news in Poland, writing stories on everything from Chinese spies to migrants stranded in forests along the Belarusian border. Earlier this year, she spent six weeks covering the conflict in Ukraine, with a focus on the evacuation of children, war reparations and evidence that Russian commanders knew of sexual violence by their troops.

Joanna graduated from the Columbia Journalism School in 2014. Before joining Reuters, she worked in Hong Kong for TIME and later in Brussels reporting on EU tech policy for POLITICO Europe.

In her new role, Joanna will cover airlines and the travel market in Europe and work with the team of reporters covering aerospace and the commercialization of space as well as the broader transport team.

Joanna has lived in seven different countries in the past 12 years, including France, Singapore and the United States. She speaks French and Polish fluently. In her free time, she loves cooking, taking her rescue German Shepherd mix, Lulu, for long walks and doing yoga.
