Summer Research Assistant
Sophia Boyd-Fliegel

Sophie is a senior studying Human Biology and Creative Writing. She grew up fiddling and rowing in Seattle, making her an avid fan of Stanford’s live music scene and member of the women’s rowing team. Sophie is fascinated by systems of environmental change and equity and spent the summer tackling this issue at the Deschutes Land Trust in Bend, Oregon with a BLC internship.  Sophie's first exposure to the Center was through the Sophomore College “Fighting Over Our Common Heritage: Public Lands in the West” with professors Bruce Cain and Buzz Thompson and subsequently took the BLC sponsored course, "What is Public about Public Lands-Who and How to Manage" taught by former BLM Director, Patrick Shea.
