JSK Journalism Fellowships
associate director
Stanford, California
Djordje Padejski is the Associate Director at Stanford University's John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships, where he mentors JSK fellows and alumni as they pursue innovative projects and technologies in journalism and runs the JSK alumni post-fellowship program. He is also a lecturer and educator who teaches journalism classes at Stanford and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University, and conducts research on the impact of AI technologies on journalism and news media ecosystems.

Prior to Stanford, Djordje worked as an investigative/data reporter, editor, and director for a number of news organizations including the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), The Center for Investigative Reporting (now Reveal), Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and The Center for Investigative Journalism in Serbia (CINS).

He was a core member of the Offshore Leaks investigation, the biggest collaborative team of journalists assembled to sift through 260 gigabytes of unstructured data – 2.5 millions of secret records from 10 tax havens and offshore assets of people from more than 170 countries (documents, emails, spreadsheets); an award-winning project by ICIJ, which prompted high-profile resignations and criminal investigations. He developed journalism tools such as a public records platform for investigative journalists called FOIA Machine (now with Muckrock), and news organizations such as the nonprofit investigative center CINS in Serbia.
