Hey HumBio! My name is Sophie, and I’m really looking forward to being a Student Advisor this year. I’m a senior from Brisbane, Australia, and have really valued my time in the HumBio community. Although I am pre-med, my HumBio concentration focuses on biosecurity, bioterrorism and human physiology and I’m also pursuing a minor in BioEthics through the Ethics and Society department. This combination has led to me taking a number of really interesting classes - from foundational ethical theory and bioethics classes, to surgical anatomy courses.
Outside of HumBio I work as an Assistant Editor for the American Journal of Bioethics, a tutor for HSSI and have previously completed a year of research through the med school as part of my HB-REX grant! In my free time I like to hike, read and continue my ongoing search for good coffee in the States. Feel free to stop by the SA office to chat with me, I can’t wait to meet all of you!"
