I am the Central Asia editor. I work with authors to produce engaging and inspiring stories that cover five Central Asian countries, Mongolia and Afghanistan. I am interested in social, political and economic developments in these countries. I am from Kyrgyzstan, but I currently live and work in Ulaanbaatar. Outside of work, you can find me either curled up with a book, cooking or enjoying outdoors.
