Jesse Eisinger is a senior reporter at ProPublica. He writes a regular column for The New York Times’s Dealbook section. (He is currently on book leave.)

In April 2011, he shared the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for a series of stories on questionable Wall Street practices that helped make the financial crisis the worst since the Great Depression. He won the 2015 Gerald Loeb Award for commentary. He has also twice been a finalist for the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting.

His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, the Baffler and on NPR and "This American Life." Before joining ProPublica, he was the Wall Street Editor of Conde Nast Portfolio and a columnist for the Wall Street Journal, covering markets and finance.
