Sonia Katyal

Professor, Law

I have served as an Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development for several years (both here and elsewhere) at the Law School and can advise colleagues regarding mentoring, campus leadership and collaboration, work/life balance, and how to design research projects that engage with various communities.  As a parent of two small children, and as a LGBTQ-identified woman of color, I am also happy to serve as a resource for anyone wishing to address similar issues regarding family and identity.

Professor Sonia Katyal’s scholarly work focuses on the intersection of technology, intellectual property, and civil rights (including antidiscrimination, privacy, and freedom of speech).  As a member and chair of the university-wide Haas LGBT Cluster, Professor Katyal also works on matters regarding law, gender and sexuality.
