Keil first became interested in conflict transformation when he attended George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR). As an undergraduate, he explored critical conflict resolution and peace in the context of Occupy and other social justice causes. After meeting Prof. Johan Galtung at the International Peace Research Association conference in Istanbul, Turkey (2014) he has collaborated with the Galtung Institute for Peace Theory and Peace Practice as its U.S. Representative. After finishing his undergrad degree, he returned to his hometown Lawrence, Kansas to work with the KU Center for Public Partnerships in Research (CPPR). He began using SenseMaker® as an evaluator for CPPR’s Lemonade for Life training, but has integrated it several grant projects and Center initiatives. He is currently completing his M.A. of International Peace Studies thesis work at the UN-Mandated University for Peace, with Dave Snowden as his advisor.
