Alex joins Redstone in the summer before his senior year at Rice University, where he studies social policy analysis and data science. His interdisciplinary degree path has fueled a passion for bridging gaps between public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

While at Rice, Alex is currently working to publish research on reproductive education access in Texas and its effect on teen health outcomes. Texas school districts closely guard their health curricula, limiting researchers’ ability to analyze restrictive local policies. Alex hopes that his state and district-level research will open dialogues for school boards about the public health benefits of comprehensive sex education. In other academic research, he has focused on community land trusts and Houston’s unhoused population.

Alex serves as a Chapter Director and founding member of Biokind Analytics, a student-run organization providing data insights to nonprofits in the health sphere. Alex is most proud of his projects with Planned Parenthood and AmeriCorps providing recommendations on donor and volunteer retention, respectively. In 2023, he interned at National Geographic to analyze online viewership of their education resources and wildlife grants. These experiences have cemented his strong belief in the importance of nonprofit data analysis.

Alex grew up in Massachusetts with two brothers and two dogs. An avid biker, climber, and hiker, he can’t wait to experience the outdoors in Colorado for the first time this summer!
