Kelsey Taylor Joins AAG Staff as Research Assistant

The AAG  is pleased to announce that Kelsey Taylor has joined the association staff as a Research Assistant at its headquarters in Washington, D.C. Kelsey has served as an intern at the association for the previous three semesters while completing her undergraduate degree and has worked on a number of grant projects during her time at the AAG. In her new role, she will contribute to AAG research projects and preparation for the 2016 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

Kelsey holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies and philosophy from The George Washington University and is currently in her first year of GWU’s geography master’s program. While her background is primarily focused in physical geography, her current research interests include urban sustainability, urban planning, political geography, and mapmaking. In addition to her work at the AAG, Kelsey serves as a graduate teaching assistant for a writing-intensive undergraduate course in urban sustainability and an introductory course in human geography.

Outside of her academic interests, Kelsey enjoys indoor and outdoor rock climbing, hiking and continuing to explore everything Washington, D.C. has to offer.
