Kathryn Petrozzo is a current Ph.D. candidate at the University of Utah. Her research interests lie at the intersection of psychiatry, neuroscience, law, and clinical ethics. She is focused on the relationship between agency, responsibility, and mental illness; chiefly, how the act of diagnosing psychiatric disorders creates particular characterizations of individuals with mental illnesses, which has effects both within and outside of the clinician's office. She is excited to join the center this summer on the BRAINshare project and assist with assessing the ethical, legal, clinical, and social implications of cutting-edge neuroscientific technology.
