Romer Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award to conduct research in the field of communication for people with paralysis using neural interfaces. Her research under Leigh Hochberg, M.D., Ph.D. culminated in her Honors Biomedical Engineering thesis, which was awarded the Domenico A. Ionada Fund for her demonstration of creativity and imagination in an independent project. Kathryn received her ScB in Biomedical Engineering from Brown University in May 2012, graduating with Honors and as a member of the Tau Beta Pi and Sigma Xi honor societies. She plans to attend medical school to continue studying and researching neurology and biomedical technology.
