He has a background in law and the military, focusing on human rights abuses, conflict, security, and arms. He is best known for his work for BBC Africa Eye on “Anatomy of a Killing” — together with a team of investigators and BBC journalists, Strick discovered where and when the execution of two women and two young children by Cameroon soldiers took place. “Anatomy of a Killing” won The Peabody, Webby and RTS awards.
Even though “Anatomy of killing” is Strick’s most well-known work, his investigations for Bellingcat and EUArms are equally important. He discovered the first Jihadi cryptocurrency crowdsourcing site on the Dark web and wrote about tracing a Jihadi cell, kidnappers and a scammer using blockchain. He also wrote numerous case studies regarding the use of different investigative tools in conflict areas. Finally, he loves dogs.
