Sophie Manaster is a rising senior studying Environmental Policy and Decision Making. She is interested in how demographic factors are related to environmental attitudes, types of behaviors engaged in, and the psychological processes preceding pro-environmental behavior change. Currently, Sophie assists on the FEW-prints study and is investigating gender differences in environmental behaviors and causal attributions to feedback on household energy consumption. In the past, Sophie has worked as an intern at a non-profit focused on environmental campaigns, and is currently writing a grant for Best Food Forward, an organization addressing food insecurity and increasing access to healthy produce. Outside of academia, Sophie enjoys running, listening to true crime podcasts, backpacking in national parks, and walking her dogs Luna and Bean.
