data editor, Univision News, Miami

How might we build collaborative networks of investigative journalists to better tell the stories of people who migrate from Central America to the United States?

Ronny Rojas is data editor for Univision News Digital in Miami and editor of the fact-checking platform “Detector de Mentiras,” the first U.S.-based Spanish-language fact-checking project. He was the winner of a Ortega y Gasset journalism award in 2017 and the Global Shining Light Award from the Global Investigative Journalism Network in 2015. He also led Univision Noticias’ Immigration Lab, a project that received support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Prototype Fund to combat the spread of misinformation. He previously worked with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and the Costa Rican newspaper La Nación.
