Based in Vienna, he authored several of Bellingcat's landmark investigations, identifying, among others, two senior Russian officers linked to the shooting down of flight MH17 in 2014, GRU officers involved with the planned coup in Montenegro in 2016, and the three Skripal poisoning suspects in 2018.
