Catherine Zuckerman

Catherine Zuckerman is a staff writer on the science desk at National Geographic. In the last decade she has covered a wide range of topics, from ocean trash to clothing made from kombucha. Her work is published in both print and digital formats.

A former food writer for the Washington Post, Zuckerman has a weakness for well-crafted restaurant reviews and old family recipes. She has two young children—and one very childlike dog—and lives in Bethesda, Maryland.
