Alicia Katrina Karzakis

Senior Research Scholar, Center for Biomedical Ethics, Stanford University

Senior Research Scholar at the Center for Biomedical Ethics at Stanford University. She began her career analyzing controversies over treatment for people with intersex traits, which resulted in the book “Fixing Sex: Intersex, Medical Authority, and Lived Experience”.

She has continued to advocate for the rights of intersex people for nearly two decades. Her current research examines the many identities of testosterone. She is currently working on a book, which stems from her work on “sex testing” and sports policies that ban women athletes for having naturally high testosterone. She helped to mount Dutee Chand’s successful appeal against the IAAF’s hyperandrogenism regulation at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and served as an expert witness in the hearing.

Her research has been covered in the New York Times, Time, BuzzFeed, The Week, CNN, ESPN, The Daily Beast, The Los Angeles Times… among others.
