Sophia completed a Master of Public Health at Lund University in Sweden in 2017. For her thesis project she joined Burnet Institute and conducted a qualitative study of risk perceptions and attitudes towards hepatitis C reinfection among HIV-diagnosed gay and bisexual men recently cured from hepatitis C.
