Hello! My name is Sofia and I am a recent graduate of Columbia University, where I studied evolutionary biology. After graduation, I spent almost a year in Costa Rica doing behavioral field work with white faced capuchin monkeys. I am currently completing my Master’s in Teaching at New York University while working as a middle school science teacher. Previously, I have also done field work in Kenya and worked at the American Museum of Natural History.
