CNSLC Staff & PALs

Allie Keller

Alexandra Keller

Learning Community Coordinator

 

 

While studying international affairs at Northern Arizona University, Allie spent some time in a rural Kenyan village, which provided valuable experience and a new interest in health inequality. This was the catalyst that propelled her to begin studying science, and she quickly began undergraduate research in a cancer genetics laboratory. While completing her master’s in molecular biology, Allie cultivated a passion for teaching science as a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow in K-12 Education. Allie recently returned from Hidalgo, Mexico, where she was a Fulbright Scholar at the Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Hidalgo. In April 2015, she became the coordinator of the College of Natural Science learning community. In her off hours, you can find Allie cooking up some “unusual” fermented foods, dancing, skiing, or teaching her Mexican pup English.
