Sophie currently oversees OSU's Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and the Arts. She is responsible for coordination of centralized undergraduate research programs, showcases, and resources. It is her personal and professional goal to develop and deliver equity-minded undergraduate research programs and resources that are accessible to students across all disciplines and demographics. Related to this goal, her research examines barriers to accessing undergraduate research experiences, including systemic inequities that may perpetuate gaps in opportunities for experiential learning.
