About Uri

I am an investigative journalist and a researcher with a unique set of expertise regarding Israel and Palestinian Territories. In 2017 I was a member of the Pulitzer Prize winning team for the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) “Panama Papers” project, and in 2020 I led the Israeli research of "Pandora Papers." My work, often data-driven and OSINT-based, appeared in Haaretz, Associated Press, Harper’s, ProPublica, Washington Post, Mother Jones, The Nation, Buzzfeed, Mashable , UK’s Channel 4 and other media outlets. I have also been featured in Netflix's blockbuster "The Tinder Swindler." During 2014 I was a fellow at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University, where I researched models for sustainable investigative platforms. I have wide array of investigative experience: from exposing corruption of top politicians, to tracking down shady practices of multinational companies and businessmen, exposing misconduct of security forces and tracing the footsteps of wanted criminals. I also direct, consult and mentor others on research methodology and strategy. Between 2016 to 2020 I worked with Videre Est Credere, a nonprofit documenting human rights violations in dangerous and hard to access parts of the world. I established Videre's Research Department and led teams across the globe. In 2021 I joined the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) to lead their Global Anti-Corruption Consortium (GACC.) My view of research is holistic: I do not think any one aspect of research can truly stand alone. Different components of research (OSINT, SOCINT, HUMINT.) should support each other to produce a better synergistic product. Sometimes a task would require recruiting sources and operating them, while in other circumstances information is gathered from a Facebook feed or public records.
