Q&A with Alex Mendelmar (Beliaev)

Alex Mendelmar (Beliaev) Program Director Where did you grow up? 

I was born in Russia, and lived in Moscow until I was about 15. In the mid-90s, my family emigrated to Canada. I finished high school and went to college in Toronto. I moved to Berkeley, California in 2006 to pursue a graduate degree in Anthropology, and lived there until I moved to Davis in January 2022.
