Steven Mark Zucker is an American mathematician who introduced the Zucker conjecture.

Zucker completed his Ph.D. in 1974 at Princeton University under the supervision of Spencer Bloch. His work with David A. Cox led to an algorithm for determining if a given set of sections provides a basis (up to torsion) for the Mordell–Weil group of an elliptic surface , where is isomorphic to the projective line.

He is currently part of the mathematics faculty at the Johns Hopkins University. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[1]
