Before joining The Times, Ms. Steel spent two years at The Financial Times as its media and marketing correspondent. Before that, Ms. Steel worked at The Wall Street Journal for six years. During her time at The Journal, Ms. Steel contributed several stories to the What They Know and End of Privacy series about the pervasive practices of tracking Americans online. The work was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting in 2012 and won a Gerald Loeb Award and a Sigma Delta Chi public service award in 2011.
Ms. Steel was born in Salt Lake City, moved to Lincoln, Neb., and moved once more before her college years to East Lyme, Conn. She graduated from the University of North Carolina, where she was a top editor at The Daily Tar Heel. Ms. Steel now lives in New York City, where she enjoys reading, dance, music and running.
