Biography

Nadia Drake covers everything from planets to animals for National Geographic’s magazine and website. Her work has also appeared in Nature, New Scientist, Wired, and Science News, where she was the astronomy reporter for several years. She has a Ph.D. in genetics from Cornell University and a certificate in science communication at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Drake frequently hits the road in search of stories and has reported from the jungles of Peru and Indonesian Borneo, Mars-on-Earth, a flying telescope, the deserts of the Middle East, and the shrinking, slumping glaciers at Mt. Kilimanjaro’s summit. She loves spiders, her favorite moon is Iapetus, and one day she dearly hopes to tell a story that combines both things.
