Julia Angwin is joining ProPublica as a senior reporter. Her focus will be privacy, technology and the surveillance state.
Angwin, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, comes to ProPublica from The Wall Street Journal, where she covered technology and media. She had been with the paper for over a decade. In 2010, she oversaw a team of reporters whose work ultimately led to a Gerald Loeb Award.
“Julia brings with her a magnificent portfolio of work, and she will be a stellar addition to our staff,” said Robin Fields, ProPublica’s managing editor, in a statement.
