Michael Wilner covers US foreign policy in the Middle East from the White House, State Department, Pentagon and Congress. He also leads coverage of the Iran nuclear deal, the US-Israel relationship and the rise of Islamic State.

At 23, Wilner joined the White House press corps as its youngest member and the only representative of an Israeli news organisation in its foreign corps. He reported from the field on the 2016 US presidential campaign, Syrian refugee crisis and Gaza war during Operation Protective Edge.

Wilner will present at various events including a North Shore briefing in Sydney, a Community Public Forum and YoungUIA event in Melbourne; and Community event in Perth.
