Find me on:

Tom Zeller Jr. is an American writer and visual journalist who has spent nearly two decades covering technology, energy policy, poverty and the environment, including twelve years as a staff reporter and editor with The New York Times. He has earned numerous awards for his work, including prizes from the Society for News Design and from the University of Navarra’s distinguished Malofiej Awards for interactive packages designed for The New York Times during the run-up to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the paper's Pulitzer Prize-winning series on race relations in America. In 2013, he was awarded a Knight Science Journalism Fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he spent a year studying the fractious intersection of science, economics and public policy—particularly as they relate to energy development, climate change and environmental conservation. Zeller is currently an independent writer based in western Massachusetts. In addition to The Times, his work has appeared in The Washington Post and National Geographic magazine, and online at Al Jazeera America, Forbes, The Huffington Post and Bloomberg.
