Hello! My name is Michael Korsh.
I'm a Data Reporter on the investigations team at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in Pittsburgh, PA, where I use computer programming and data analysis to conduct high-impact investigative and accountability journalism. My reporting has centered on a wide variety of subjects, from housing and health to police transparency and far-right extremism.
Prior to joining the Post-Gazette, I conducted investigations for ProPublica, The Washington Post and ICIJ through the Medill Investigative Lab. I received my BSJ and MSJ from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, where I graduated summa cum laude and earned the Medill Valedictorian Award.
