Mark Mazzetti is a correspondent for The New York Times, where he has covered national security from the newspaper’s Washington bureau since April 2006.

In 2009, he shared a Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the intensifying violence in Pakistan and Afghanistan and Washington’s response. The previous year, he was a Pulitzer finalist for revelations about the C.I.A.’s detention and interrogation program.

Before joining The Times, Mazzetti was a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times, where he covered the Pentagon and military affairs from June 2004 until April 2006. Since the Sept. 11 attacks, he has made several reporting trips to Afghanistan, Iraq and the Horn of Africa.

From 2001 through 2004 he was the Pentagon correspondent for U.S. News & World Report, covering defense and national security. During the war in Iraq in 2003, he spent two months embedded with the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force and as a reporter in Baghdad. Before joining U.S. News, he worked as a correspondent for The Economist, based in Washington, D.C. and Austin, Tex. from 1998 until 2001. While with The Economist, he covered national politics, including the candidacy of George W Bush, as well as business, general news and culture stories in the Southwest.

Born in Washington, D.C. on May 13, 1974, Mazzetti received his Bachelor of Arts degree in public policy and history from Duke University in 1996, graduating Summa Cum Laude. He went on to earn a Masters degree in modern history from Oxford University in 1997.
