Andalusia Knoll Soloff is a multimedia journalist based in Mexico City who specializes in state violence, migration, indigenous land struggles and gender-based murders in Latin America.

Her work has appeared on Democracy Now!, VICE News, HBO, AJ+, BBC, NBC, The Intercept, Teen Vogue, New York Magazine, ZDF, and La Jornada. Andalusia is the author of Alive You Took Them, a graphic novel about the 43 disappeared Ayotzinapa students.
