Charles Duhigg, a reporter for The New York Times since 2006, was part of a team writing a series titled “The iEconomy” about Apple, and the company's influence within the U.S. and abroad. That series won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism.

In his book, Smarter, Faster, Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business (2016), Duhigg explores the science of productivity, and why, in today’s world, managing how you think – rather than what you think about – can transform your life.

Duhigg’s first book The Power of Habit, Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business (2012), about the science of habit formation, spent over 60 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list.

Duhigg has received a number of awards, including the George Polk Award, The Scripps Howard National Journalism Award, a Loeb Award, the Investigative Reporters and Editors’ Medal, the National Academies’ reporting award, the investigative reporting award from the Society of Environmental Journalists, and the 2009 Science in Society Journalism Award.

A graduate of Harvard Business School, Duhigg is a frequent commentator on television and radio including PBS NewsHour, Frontline, Dr. Oz, This American Life, and on various programs on CNBC and NPR.
