Jacy is a co-founder and research fellow at Sentience Institute.
His research focuses on organizations, technology, and moral progress. His first book,
The End of Animal Farming,
uses a social science lens to analyze the inclusion of animals in humanity's moral circle, particularly via the development
of food technologies such as plant-based and cell-cultured meat.
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.”
His research has been featured in The Guardian, Vox, Forbes, and other global media outlets, and he has given talks and lectures in over 20 countries. He is from Huntsville, Texas and currently lives in New York City with his wife Kelly, their dogs Apollo and Dionysus, and their two rescued chickens Snow and Dualla.
