01.Zoya Sheftalovich's bio
Name: Zoya Sheftalovich
Job title: Journalist
Experience/expertise: I have been working as a journalist for the better part of a decade, and have spent the last two years at CHOICE. I am a generalist journalist with a particular interest in supermarket practices, unfair contracts, consumer legal issues, and false and misleading advertising practices.
Tell us about your role at CHOICE: I coordinate The Checkout, or news, section of CHOICE Magazine. I also conduct longer-form investigations. I’ve recently worked on a multi-part story into supermarket practices in Australia and explored contraceptive options currently available on the market, and conducted a blind user trial into cheap, moderate and expensive products to determine whether you get what you pay for.
The weirdest product I’ve recently tested is: underpants. There’s something just a little bit awkward about buying a whole shopping basket full of mens' undies.
