Hi everyone! My name is Kyra Keenan and I am a Junior in Biological Engineering concentrating in Cellular and Biomolecular Engineering. I'm also minoring in Biotechnology and Art and Design. I'm crazy passionate about space and sustainable agriculture. In my future, I hope to work in bioregenerative astrobotany research after obtaining a PhD. On campus, I'm involved in the Honors College, ABE Ambassadors, undergraduate research, and I'm the PSEF IR committee director. I'm also an outdoor enthusiast and love hiking, skiing, and trail running in my free time.
