Biography:

MSc. in Biodiversity, Conservation, and Management, University of Oxford. BSc. in Biology, Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León.

But her passion did not materialise after earning a bachelor's degree in Biology from Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León. During her time as a BSc student, Sofía worked as a research assistant in the Biosystematics Laboratory and then interned at Pronatura Noreste for six months, where she was involved in restoration, reforestation, and community garden centre projects. Once she completed her degree, Sofía interned at HCV Network, where she was later promoted to Assistant Project Manager. There, she worked with the Network in various projects including the integration of the HCV-HCS approaches; the research on challenges of HCV management and monitoring in certified palm oil plantings; and the development of risk-based approaches to HCV identification. In 2018, she was awarded a CONACyT Scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in Biodiversity, Conservation, and Management at the University of Oxford. Her interests range from tropical conservation and marine ecology to environmental management and supply chain certification.Sofía is currently based in Costa Rica, and speaks Spanish, English, and French.
