Alyssa Burgin

Executive Director

Although my academic background is primarily in science, I became involved in politics while at the University of Texas and went on to hold national positions in political communications. In the last decade, I served as crisis communications director for one NGO and worked in environmental issue advocacy for another. The Texas Drought Project, an organization I co-founded, is tasked with educating Texans on climate change through the lens of drought, and we are currently embarking upon a project on climate adaptation in Texas.
