Her work on human rights, migration, refugees and the environment has appeared in Public Radio International, Al Jazeera, BBC and Time, among others.
As part of the GroundTruth Project's 2015 global diseases series with PBS, Alisa reported on the curious and swift rise of the MERS virus from its birthplace, just outside Jordan’s capital Amman.
