About Me

Azie Sophia wants to live in a world where smartphones are not the king of communication, love letters are written by hands, gymnasium is not a priority.

As a PhD student in geophysics, she’s been honored with awards like Best Poster for PhD at Robert Sheriff Symposium.

When she’s not at the computer working on the thesis, you can find her reading Yelp exploring new places to eat, coffee shops, watching new movies and playing board games until midnight.
