Kat Kennedy is a Physiology Ph.D. Student and Science Writer based in Tucson, Arizona. Though curious about the mechanistic underpinnings of all life on earth, Kennedy’s research explores the use of novel therapeutics able to improve sleep health and behaviour.
Supporting an interdisciplinary approach to health, Kennedy advocates for environmental and social justice, as well as open access to scientific data. She uses her science communication skills to help combat misinformation and pseudoscience, reporting on innovative findings along the way.
Drawing from a diverse background in marine biology and ecology as well as industry experience as a microbiologist, Kennedy is anything but conventional, but thinks academia is more interesting that way.
