Stories by Luis Alexis Rodríguez-Cruz
Luis Alexis Rodríguez Cruz brings visibility and understanding to food systems issues in Puerto Rico and beyond through science and storytelling. He explores social-ecological connections and relationships, considering the effects of the climate crisis and policy decisions, as they reflect on people’s vulnerability and the environment. Luis does so through applied research, multidisciplinary art, and food culture. He holds a PhD in food systems from the University of Vermont, and a BS in biology and a MS in food science and technology from the Ponce and Mayagüez campuses of the University of Puerto Rico, respectively. He has published his works in open-access journals, and has written for El Nuevo Día, 80grados, Science and others.
