He also gives talks and organise and runs workshops and masterclasses — in English, Spanish and French — on collaborative and investigative journalism. From 2019 to 2022, he worked with Arena for Journalism in Europe, which promotes cross-border investigative journalism and organises the Dataharvest conference.
