Kelsi’s current research is focused on understanding how chronic stress related to queer identity becomes embodied within the skeleton. Kelsi is also working with Dr. L. Zachary DuBois and his STAR Lab to examine transgender health and resilience from a biocultural perspective. Previously, Kelsi completed a Master of Arts in Applied Anthropology at the University of South Florida. There they studied the application of an elemental analysis technique called Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) within the fields of forensic anthropology and bioarchaeology, for the purpose of discriminating individuals from one another using the unique elemental profiles within their skeletons.
