Alex is a rising senior studying environmental chemistry at Umass Amherst. His extensive background in environmental chemistry led to his current focus around environmental pollution, a theme where science intersects with law, politics, justice, and globalization. His training in environmental law and his moderate approach to lawmaking made him recognize the importance of the UN in promoting social and environmental equity at a global stage. As an aspiring educator, he works on contextualizing science and problematizing scientific issues. He is excited about the teaching opportunities in the program. He is also a proud resident of Boston South Shore.
