About Sophie

As a former policy researcher for a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving transparency in the Colombian oil industry, Sophie is used to analysing complex issues.

At Crest, Sophie analyses and evaluates statistics and existing policies affecting the criminal justice system. She uses qualitative and quantitative research to test theories and understand trends, such as modelling the demand on prison populations and looking at how local police forces interact with their communities. A critical thinker, Sophie ensures Crest’s research projects are delivered efficiently, on time and on budget. Outside work, Sophie spends her time exploring new countries and learning languages.
