The Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Columbia University has named Julia Angwin as a 2023 Entrepreneur in Residence.

The entrepreneurs in residence provide guidance on building sustainable ventures that explore the intersection of journalism and technology.

Angwin joins the program from The Markup, a nonprofit newsroom she founded that produces meaningful data-centered journalism about technology and the people affected by it.

Before founding The Markup, Angwin led investigative teams at ProPublica and The Wall Street Journal. She is the author of “Dragnet Nation: A Quest for Privacy, Security and Freedom in a World of Relentless Surveillance,” (Times Books, 2014) and “Stealing MySpace: The Battle to Control the Most Popular Website in America” (Random House, March 2009).

Angwin has a B.A. in mathematics from The University of Chicago and an MBA from Columbia University.

She is also a winner and two-time finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in journalism.
