Carole is a Pulitzer-nominated Guardian journalist, Observer editor and Cambridge Analytica investigator. She previously worked at The Daily Telegraph, and was nominated for numerous Press Awards. Cadwalladr was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 2019, receiving praise for her investigation and coverage of Cambridge Analytica and its role in Brexit.

Cadwalladr's great dedication in exposing a nexus of corruption that led to Mark Zuckerberg appearing before Congress, and in exposing Cambridge Analytica's role in mass data collection to influence elections (Brexit and Trump), goes far beyond the question of Remain or Leave. His research also interrogates the role we have been puppeteered into a 2017 Britain that took its first step towards an anti-democratic world.

In April 2019, Cadwalladr gave a TED Talk, "Facebook's role in Brexit - and the threats to democracy", on the links found between Facebook and the Brexit election. Cadwalladr has won other awards, including the British Journalism Awards: Technology Journalism Award in December 2017 and The Orwell Prize for political journalism in 2018. She is the author of The Family Tree, published in 2006 and shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize 2006.
