Kiley Lawrence ’14

Hometown: Mission Hills, KS
Major: Biophysics

Kiley is a senior from a suburb of Kansas City, majoring in Biophysics. Throughout her four years, she has enjoyed working in multiple research labs, with a current focus on observing the dynamics of DNA via computer simulations. Kiley’s semesters have been shaped by both her passion for science, and a long-standing love of humanities; she has had the opportunity to explore many academic fields, and taken classes across the Consortium. Her time at Scripps and her close relationships with her professors have allowed her to grow and become confident as a woman in science and technology, and have pushed her to defy gendered stereotypes in her hometown and abroad.

Outside of academics, she serves on the Admissions Advisory Board, is in her second year as a Resident Advisor, is active in Choice USA, and enjoys local hiking trails and yoga classes. After graduation, Kiley hopes to pursue a career in surgery with a focus on global health.
