Dr. Grayson is a biomedical engineer, chemical engineering researcher, and a diversity advocate in STEM. She is a first-generation student and proud alumna of the HBCU Norfolk State University, where she earned her BS in Chemistry (2012). Korie obtained her MS (2017) and PhD (2020) in Biomedical Engineering from Cornell University where she studied cancer drug resistance in 2D and 3D prostate cancer cell culture environments. Currently, Korie is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan in Chemical Engineering. Her research focuses on the evaluation of novel nano- and microparticles for therapy in neutrophilic, acute inflammatory disease and cancer.

Korie is passionate about increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in STEM by illustrating that #representationmatters. She is the Diversity Chair for @womendoingscience, a popular IG account that showcases women in STEM from all over the world. She is also on the planning council for STEMNoire, a holistic wellness and research retreat for Black women in STEM, and the Finance Director for BlackInCancer, an organization that aims to strengthen networks and highlight Black excellence in cancer research and medicine. She is also a part of the STEM Avengers that successfully planned the STEM Success Summit, a virtual conference designed to equip and empower young adults, who are traditionally underrepresented in STEM, to launch and build a successful STEM career with purpose. Hosted by Generation Next, the Tech and Culture Speaker Series promotes diversity, inclusion and belonging in tech-related fields through diverse speakers who are leading in the tech industry. The series invites speakers to share their personal stories to inspire, motivate and transform the mindset of the diverse audiences.
