Executive Assistant to Science Programs
The Kavli Foundation
Ms. Kelly Johnson completed her Bachelor’s of Science in Astrophysics in 2016 at Arizona State University. Before starting grad school, Ms. Johnson has taken time off to explore specifically non-academic positions; currently working as the Executive Assistant to Science Programs at The Kavli Foundation, she has learned about the other side of scientific funding as well as other scientific fields – neuroscience and nanoscience. Planning to return to academia within the year, Ms. Johnson wishes to explore the conditions for life to exist in the universe – arguing that the answer is broader than what is currently accepted. Her passion for this topic spurs Ms. Johnson’s goal to search for signs of this “weird life” on exoplanets.
