Sophie Wang (aka shuf) is a second generation Chinese American invested in making science more equitable by opening up conversations around how it interacts with society. She sparks these conversations through multimedia forms ranging from comics to experiential exhibits, drawing from her postgrad training in Science, Technology, and Society and her many years making art of widely varying quality. In her free (radical) time, she recommends the Remembrance of Earth’s Past scifi series to strangers, watches an embarrassing amount of Dota 2, and does development work for nonprofits.
