Kelsey completed both her undergraduate and graduate degrees at McMaster University, with an M.Sc. in 3D geologic and hydrogeologic modelling in southern Ontario, and a Ph.D. focusing on geomodelling and the application of geostatistics to improve the accuracy of 3D subsurface models.
In 2012, Kelsey joined the Alberta Geological Survey and Alberta Energy Regulator as a geomodeller.
In 2014 Kelsey transitioned into a management roll and became the Director of the Geology and Resources Group in 2016. Kelsey enjoys looking for new and innovative ways to enhance our understanding of Alberta’s geology and resources, and improving access to geological information and data through collaboration with colleagues in academia, government, industry, public, and around the globe.
