Kata Karáth


I’m a science journalist with multimedia skills. I’m obsessed with science, environment and technology, especially with the complex connection between conservation, economics and politics. I occasionally cover Eastern European current affairs, language and history.

I currently work as a freelancer. I have been published in several titles including Quartz, and New Scientist.  In addition to writing, I have also researched, reported and produced short news videos, which have appeared in Quartz and Kecskeméti Television Hungary. I assisted the production of scientific and environmental documentaries as fixer, interpreter, translator and researcher appearing on the BBC, Sky, Al Jazeera and Animal Planet.

I was a finalist for the European Science Writer of the Year 2017, an award organised by the Association of British Science Writers, and therefore also the Hungarian Science Writer of the Year nominated by Tudományos Újságírók Klubja (Club of Hungarian Science Journalists).

I hold a Bachelor degree in zoology from Szent István University in Hungary, and Master degree in science journalism from City University in London. Prior to working as a journalist, I was training to be a zoologist-zookeeper specialized in conservation programs.
