Pulitzer Center grantee Simeon Tegel is a British journalist based in Lima, Peru. He covers a broad range of themes across Latin America, including politics, society, culture and sport but specializes in environmental issues, development and adventure.

His reports for the Pulitzer Center primarily focus on climate change, as the effects of this environmental phenomenon increasingly burden Latin America. With coverage on the drought in Chihuahua to the vanishing glaciers in Ecuador, Tegel's on-the-ground reporting from four of the region's climate frontlines documents the human consequences of anthropogenic global warming's early impacts.
