He has authored or contributed to multiple series, including "The Reckoning" (2008), which studied the causes and outcomes of the financial crisis, and "The iEconomy", which examined the global economy through the lens of Apple, and which won the 2013 Pulitzer prize in explanatory journalism. He has also won the George Polk Award (2007), the Gerald Loeb Award (2008), the National Journalism Award (2009) and other honors.

Before becoming a journalist, Mr. Duhigg worked in private equity and founded a health care company in his home state of New Mexico (and, for one terrifying day in 1999, was a bike messenger in San Francisco). He is a graduate of the Harvard Business School and Yale College.
