Charles Rollet

I worked as a reporter for the Phnom Penh Post from 2014 to 2016, after which I spent a summer freelancing in the Republic of Georgia.

I was an intern at the Wall Street Journal's Hong Kong bureau in the summer of 2017 and just finished my master's degree in business journalism at NYU.

I have extensive experience in both reporting and copy editing. I am a French citizen.
