Imogen has also produced several high-impact stories through traditional reporting. While receiving her master’s in research architecture at Goldsmiths University of London, Imogen was trained in visual investigative techniques by Forensic Architecture researchers.
She was also a lecturer in design at Goldsmiths University of London. Her research-driven visual work has been exhibited at the Imperial War Museum and the Design Museum.
Imogen will be based in London and starts Sept 19. Please join us in welcoming her to The Post.
