From black holes to beetles, Kelly is breaking down the barriers of technobabble to get to the heart of science stories. She has hounded Nobel Prize-winning physicists for quotes at the CERN Large Hadron Collider and documented the global threat of food insecurity from invasive species for the Integrated Pest Management project at Virginia Tech. Her work has been nominated for an Emmy Award, and she has written for Scientific American’s blog, Symmetry Magazine, and North Carolina Public Television.

She has a master’s degree in medical and science journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she learned to tell stories, and a bachelor’s in physics from Appalachian State University, where she looked at stars through telescopes.
