Reb, ACE Headshot

Rebecca Anderson

Senior Head of Education and Research

Rebecca came to ACE in its inception in 2008 as an Educator and now leads ACE’s Education & Research program. Reb believes that education is the foundation for ACE’s mission to give young people the tools they need to fight for their future. (Check out ACE’s climate education resource Our Climate Our Future for more.)

Reb came to ACE with a background in paleoclimate, where she did research in the Arctic and Antarctic. For her Masters degree, she studied ice caps on Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic. Most of the ice caps she studied in 2005 have since disappeared. Reb was also a member of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Ice Core Drilling Project, where she analyzed the age of the ice core in a refrigerated building at -30º. When not fighting for climate justice, Reb enjoys chasing her husband and son over the slopes, rocks, and trails around Truckee, CA.
