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 lead our ambitious investigative and accountability journalism. My reporting has exposed breakdowns in the city of Pittsburgh's vacant & abandoned housing program, critical gaps in police crime reporting and anonymous ownership of properties in Allegheny County.

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.
