Alexis
Temkin
Toxicologist

Originally from Chappaqua, N.Y., Alexis recently moved to Washington, D.C., to join the investigative science team at Environmental Working Group. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from Connecticut College in 2010. Alexis began her research career at Columbia University Medical Center, working as a lab technician studying the molecular mechanisms responsible for environmental influence on gene regulation. She then moved to beautiful Charleston, S.C., to attend the Medical University of South Carolina, where she earned a Ph.D. in marine biomedicine and environmental sciences. She studied how exposure to environmental chemicals during development can influence adult disease, specifically obesity and metabolic syndrome. In her spare time, you can probably find Lexi in a yoga studio, exploring the closest outdoor park, attending a dance performance or cooking vegetables.
