Kelsey Corallo is a second-year psychology graduate student in the Behavioral and Brain Sciences Ph.D. program at the University of Georgia. Kelsey received her B.S. in Psychology with a Justice Studies minor from Arizona State University in 2015, and spent the following two years teaching pre-kindergarten through the Teach for America program. She is now a member of the Health and Development Laboratory (supervisor: Dr. Katherine Ehrlich) at UGA, and is broadly interested in the study of how early life experiences influence developmental outcomes across the lifespan. Specifically, Kelsey is interested in how student-teacher relationships and school experiences in childhood can influence student health, by mediating or moderating the association between stress and biomarkers of immunity. Ultimately, she seeks to contribute to the research and implementation of school and community programs that promote healthy child development.
