Sophie graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Psychology in 2021. She spent her undergraduate years researching cognitive development in school-age children. She received the Lorraine Nadelman Honors Thesis Award for her independent research on children’s perceptions of the Covid-19 pandemic. In her work translating scientific research to the broader community, Sophie researched children’s perceptions of non-native English speakers and explored novel ways to combat harmful racial and linguistic stereotypes for school-age children. After graduation, Sophie joined the Anxiety & Mood Disorders Laboratory to further her clinical skillset and advocacy work with children and families. Sophie continues to translate science to the educational community by working with and supporting children with Social Anxiety Disorder. Sophie hopes to continue her work advocating for children in the education system.
