Sophia Green is a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service and is majoring in Science, Technology and International Affairs with a minor in Environmental Studies. They are from Los Angeles where they spent the majority of their time in and around the ocean. This sparked a love for the marine environment which has since evolved into an interest in the scientific, political and societal processes of environmental policy formation, particularly relating to marine conservation. They have explored this interest through research in the National Geographic Archives where they analyzed how visual framing techniques in pollution photography published by National Geographic influenced environmental policy in the 1970s. Sophia has continued to develop this interest through conducting research with their mentor, Dr. Shiloh Krupar, into brownfield restoration programs, biohacking, and pollution from COVID-19 waste. Outside of MURF, Sophia extensively volunteers with the Los Angeles LGBT Center, Changing the Conversation Together, and the Surfrider Foundation.
