Sofia is a doctoral student in Sociology and Social Policy. She received her B.S. in Symbolic Systems with a concentration in Computational Social Science and a minor in Data Science from Stanford University. Her undergraduate thesis used administrative data to determine the effects of worksite immigration raids on the academic performance of Hispanic children in nearby communities. Before starting her Ph.D., she was a predoctoral fellow at Stanford's Institute for Economic Policy Research where she researched workplace risk throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In the future, she plans to continue studying labor, immigration, and social stratification using quantitative methods.
