2013 Fellow at Code for America
Sophia is a 2013 Code for America Fellow. She is a Geographer, which means she thinks about space, business, and money. When not thinking about space, business or money, she works on munging and liberating data, and spends a fair amount of time hanging out at charreadas.
Previously, she was Director of Operations at OpenGeo and a Adjunct Professor at Hunter College.
Before joining OpenGeo, she was a founder and CTO of IONIC Enterprise (acquired by Erdas) and Senior Program Manager for In-Q-Tel, the CIA's venture capital fund.
Way back when, she worked for transportation and environmental engineering firms building geospatial infrastructure for LAX, TxDOT, and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
