Sofia Wilson is a doctoral student in the Center for Education Policy Analysis and a recipient of the Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education Doctoral Fellowship at Stanford University. She received a BA in Economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and an Ed.M in Education from Boston University. Prior to Stanford, Sofia was an Education Pioneers Impact Fellow at Start Early, a consultant for US school districts, and a teacher in Oakland and Boston public schools.
Sofia is interested in examining the relationship between early childhood experiences and long-term economic and educational attainment, and how policies that impact children and families at the intersection of race and income reduce or amplify inequities. In the SPARK Lab, Sofia aims to contribute to studies that examine the impact of socioeconomic adversities on cognitive and behavioral childhood outcomes, and the mechanisms that provide protective layers.
