About

My name is Paula Pedigoni Ponce and I am excited to join OII for the Recognized Student Program for the Hilary Term of 2023, under the supervision of Professor Brent Mittelstadt. I am a PhD Candidate at the Law School of the University of São Paulo and my research is focused on the regulation of health personal data in Brazil. The works by Professors Floridi and Mittelstadt on the ethical challenges associated with the use of health data in digital technologies have guided me by posing the central questions about the impact of the evolving technologies on the health field, one in which ethical rules have historically shaped information handling. Therefore, it would be a true privilege to take part in the course, to learn more about the concepts and methodology of the philosophy and ethics of information and, hopefully, benefit from it in PhD research.
