Sophie is a fifth year medical student at the University of Edinburgh, and chair of the APEX charity. Her academic interests are in expedition medicine and global surgery. Having been inspired by the amazing team on APEX 5 to lead her own expedition, APEX 6 to Bolivia next Summer, she can’t wait for all the hard work to pay off. It’ll be great to be back in the beautiful Bolivian Andes, doing cutting edge research and inspiring a new generation! Outside of studying, Sophie is a keen photographer and cook, and loves travelling the globe in search of the perfect shot, or some gorgeous food!
