Matt Apuzzo is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for The New York Times, where he focuses on issues related to national security and criminal justice. He has uncovered the locations of CIA prisons, revealed widespread cheating on FBI certification tests and showed how haphazard discipline at the CIA

allowed people to get promotions despite kidnapping or promoting the wrong people. He spent 11 years as a reporter with The Associated Press, where he received the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting
as part of a team that showed how the New York Police Department systematically spied on Muslim Americans and built databases of where they ate, shopped, lived and prayed. The series of stories, backed by secret documents, led the NYPD to shutter one of the most controversial surveillance programs and forced the city to rewrite its intelligence-gathering policies.
