Chelsey received her Ph.D. in LLED from UBC in 2015. Chelsey received a Vanier Fellowship for her research on the digital storytelling practices of rural Nicaraguan youth enrolled in a civic engagement program. The Vanier enabled her to spend long periods of time in Latin America and immerse herself in research on youth media production. She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Brock University’s Social Justice Research Institute, and also works as a researcher on a Google youth coding and diversity project. Chelsey’s work with youth, digital and media production, and transnational learning communities has been published in both scholarly and professional networks.
