Mark Mazzetti is a New York Times Washington investigative correspondent, a job he assumed after covering national security from The Times's Washington bureau for 10 years. He was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for reporting on Donald Trump’s advisers and their connections to Russia.

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.

He is the author of "The Way of the Knife," a New York Times best-selling account of the secret wars waged by the C.I.A. and Pentagon since the Sept. 11 attacks. He is a three-time recipient of the George Polk award.
