Steve Suo serves as Northwest editor for ProPublica and is based in Clackamas County, Oregon.

Suo joined ProPublica from USA Today, where he was data editor. His team there helped to analyze the polarization of congressional tweets, expose the scope and causes of failed adoptions and reveal a nursing home chain’s lagging track record of keeping people alive during COVID-19’s peak.

Prior to USA Today, Suo was a reporter and editor for The Oregonian/Oregon Live, where he led the investigations and data team. The team’s work prompted National Guard leaders to close and clean out lead-contaminated armories and helped spur a state constitutional amendment that allowed limits on campaign contributions. As a reporter, he was a 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist in national news for a series on methamphetamine that helped change national and international drug policy.
