Doctor Kelly studies relationships between people and the ability (or inability) for individuals and groups to deeply connect through interpersonal communication. She is particularly engaged in harnessing bias to help groups reach higher levels of communication – and thus productivity. Doctor Kelly's research findings (along with co-authors) have appeared in the Journal of Psychotherapy, The Clinical Psychologist, and Urban Education as well as an edited book, Bringing Diversity to Feminist Psychology, and many more. Additionally, she has presented at more than twenty conferences throughout the world. Doctor Kelly is currently affiliated with the City University of New York.

Food is great!
