About Kali Carrigan

Kali Carrigan is a freelance research specialist at the Forever Healthy Foundation, and a devoted public advocate for research on aging and longevity. Her background is in genetics–where she has worked as a cancer researcher– and psychology, where she has carried out several projects on narratives of death, and the effects of mortality salience on health-oriented behavior. At the moment, she is writing her M.A thesis on the semiotics of death in contemporary Europe and the United States. Formerly, Kali has worked as a palliative care counselor, an experience which helped shape her views on the need for increased advocacy in the public and legislative spheres. As a writer and translator, Kali has authored articles on longevity as an imperative both at the individual and global level, bringing together the ethical, scientific, and health aspects of aging in one unified vision. She was one of the first translators of Aubrey de Grey’s groundbreaking book “Ending Aging” into Spanish. Through consulting and advocacy, Kali hopes to bring the advances of longevity science to the general public by providing clear and accessible information on the benefits of longevity for the pursuit of health and wellbeing.
