The Center for Public Integrity

Greene joined the Center in 2011 after serving as The Miami Herald’s investigations and government editor. He was project editor for Breathless and Burdened, an investigative series by Chris Hamby describing how the coal industry beat back miners' claims for black lung benefits, honored with the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting. Greene led Center investigations into contracts and connections at the Department of Energy, was part of the reporting teams for Poisoned Places, Hard Labor and Toxic Clout, and edited Mystery in the Fields, exposing rare kidney deaths among laborers. His Center investigations earned an Emmy Award and the Harvard Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting, in partnership with ABC News, and honors from the White House Correspondents' Association, Columbia University, Sigma Delta Chi, IRE and Gerald Loeb. At The Miami Herald, Greene was lead editor for Neglected To Death, a Pulitzer Prize Finalist investigation exposing abuses in Florida group homes. He was part of four Herald reporting teams awarded the Pulitzer Prize (twice) or named finalists (twice), and spent nine years as an investigative reporter exposing slave-like conditions in Florida’s farm fields, deadly air cargo plane crashes and public corruption. Greene received a Master's in Nonfiction Writing from the Johns Hopkins University, a journalism degree from VCU, and taught graduate journalism at the University of Miami. He is author of Night Fire: Big Oil, Poison Air, And Margie Richard’s Fight To Save Her Town. Greene left the Center in 2014.
