Kelsey Berry
Postdoctoral Researcher

Kelsey Berry, PhD, is a postdoctoral research scholar at the Center for
Bioethics at Harvard Medical School. She received her PhD in health policy
and ethics from Harvard University and her BA in political philosophy
and neuroscience from Princeton University. Kelsey’s research examines
the application of theories of justice to resource allocation dilemmas
in domestic and global health systems, especially as it regards access
to health care for vulnerable populations and the role of nonmedical
factors in determining patient prioritization. She uses normative,
qualitative, and quantitative research methods to analyze progress
towards fair access to health care, focusing on behavioral health as well
as solid organ transplantation policy areas. Kelsey has received teaching
distinctions in public health ethics and was previously awarded the
Eugene P. Beard Research Fellowship at Harvard University’s Edmond
J. Safra Center for Ethics. Years ago, she was a professional modern
dance artist and continues to perform in Boston in her spare time.
