Megan Kelley is a third year PhD candidate in Neuroscience with a focus on social neuroscience and social robotics. She was born and raised in Georgia and received her B.A. in psychology from the University of Georgia in 2010. She has lived in the New Haven area for five years and is passionate about helping graduate students discover all the beauty, vibrancy, culture, and community that the city has to offer. Through her position as Chair of the Service committee, she is committed to amplifying the voices of Yale graduate students from underrepresented backgrounds, collecting information about barriers to access and success, fighting to hold Yale accountable, and establishing programs for community building across graduate school departments and the broader New Haven area.  She asks that if you as a graduate student feel you are facing unjust barriers to your success—especially those that relate to background and identity—that you contact her or your representative within the GSA.
