STEM Squad Profile: Sophie Okolo

My name’s Sophie. I have a BS in Bioinformatics and an MPH in Aging and Longevity. After working in the lab, I decided I want to write about the science, so I launched Global Health Aging before landing my current job as a Researcher and Science Writer for a think tank. I’ve written about various topics including big data and AI, disease prevention and healthcare innovation for Forbes, MarketWatch, Pfizer GetOld, and more. My dream is to become an expert science communicator, especially in public speaking. I’m a member of my local Toastmasters club and hope to gain confidence by having more speaking opportunities. In my free time, I love to read, travel and spend time with family and friends!
