Kelsie standing outside against a stream


Kelsie is a graduate student in Biochemistry. As a member of Dr. Amy Palmer's lab in biochemistry, she uses fluorescence microscopy to study the role that metals play in cell biology. She has mentored both Biological Sciences Initiative (BSI) and Summer Multicultural Access to Research Training (SMART) students in the lab. As an undergraduate she worked for my college's Office of Undergraduate Studies summer program as an RA / TA for an intensive summer program designed to help prepare underrepresented and first-generation students for college. She studied molecular biology as an undergraduate at Colgate University and has some background in neuroscience along with her biochemistry work.

Kelsie served as graduate student mentor to Lady Grant.
