Sophia Green is a freshman in the School of Foreign Service studying Science, Technology and International Affairs. She is from Los Angeles and, growing up, she spent her free time hiking, swimming, and surfing throughout California. This sparked a love for environmental studies which, in high school, developed into an interest in the political and societal processes of environmental policy formation. In Professor Fieseler’s proseminar “Deeper Sources if Environmental Policy” she explored this interest through her research in the National Geographic Archives where she analyzed how visual framing techniques in pollution photography influenced the environmental policy of the 1970s. This semester, she will be working with Professor Shiloh Krupar, whose research spans subjects such as architecture, geography, biomedicine, and environmental justice. Outside of MURF, Sophia is a member of the Women’s Ultimate Frisbee team and continues her previous volunteer work with the Surfrider Foundation and Los Angeles LGBT Center.
