Kelly Anne Graves earned her undergraduate degree in cognitive science and psychology from Goucher College. She specializes in the study of contemplative science and cognitive neuroscience with a focus on the influence of meditation practice on the brain. She recently finished a research project in India on embodied cognition and yoga, spent the past summer in Japan studying Zen poetry and composing a series of neuroscience-based haikus, and studies worldview and Buddhist practice at the Consciousness Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado. Her current research project looks at how Buddhism may aid in cultivating a more compassionate worldview and is interested in rethinking current scientific methodology for the study of mind, experience and subjectivity.
