Jacy is co-founder and Research Fellow at Sentience Institute,
a think tank researching the expansion of humanity's moral circle. He is best known for helping develop
the ideas of effective altruism, a growing movement of
people using science and evidence-based analysis to tackle the world's most pressing problems.
Jacy's new book, The End of Animal Farming,
uses this lens to outline a roadmap to a more ethical, sustainable, and prosperous food system for humans and animals.
Psychologist Steven Pinker said the book "places the issue of factory farming in the context of human progress and presents
compelling arguments on how we should deal with it today.”
Reese's work has been featured in The Guardian, Vox, Forbes, and elsewhere, and he has presented his research in over 20 countries. He is from Huntsville, Texas and currently lives in New York City with his partner Kelly, their adopted dog Apollo, and their two chickens Snow and Dualla, who were rescued from a battery cage farm in California. Please get in touch to discuss collaboration, interviews, writing, lectures, or other matters, though I will only be able to respond to inquiries that fit with my schedule and interests.
