Alex Reich
Graduate Research Assistant
Global Landscapes Initiative

In his research with the Global Landscapes Initiative, Alex investigates the environmental implications of dietary choices and eating patterns.

After graduating with a B.A. in biology from Grinnell College, Alex spent a year in the Arctic on a Watson Fellowship, learning about the local impacts of climate change and globalization as seen through the diets and traditional harvesting activities of indigenous northern peoples. Recently, Alex cooked in a restaurant, worked on a farm, and helped start MinuteEarth, a YouTube channel focused on environmental science and sustainability.

He loves to run, ski, cook, eat, and be outside.
