Von Hügel Institute

for Critical Catholic Inquiry


Sofia Carozza is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Human Network Initiative at Harvard Medical School. She uses computational modelling to study the role of the early-life environment in the development of the human brain and has published this work in journals such as PNAS and Psychological Science. More broadly, her interdisciplinary academic interests include the philosophy of neuroscience, philosophical anthropology, and the relationship between science and religion. Her doctoral research, which she completed at the University of Cambridge as a Marshall Scholar, investigated the impact of abuse and neglect on children’s brain networks. Sofia also holds an MPhil from Cambridge and a BS from the University of Notre Dame, where she studied neuroscience and theology and graduated as valedictorian of the class of 2019.
