Sophie Gibert, BA

Sophie Gibert is a first-year pre-doctoral fellow in the Department of Bioethics. She graduated from Wellesley College in 2016 as a double major in Philosophy and an independent major called Biology and Society. Before coming to the department, she worked for ChildObesity180, a non-profit organization housed within Tufts University's Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, where she supported the Restaurant Initiative's study of children's orders and consumption patterns in quick-service restaurants and assisted with the launch of a community-based messaging campaign. Prior to this, she investigated the impact of calorie labeling regulations on chain restaurant menus with researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Her undergraduate research focused on the ethics of using libertarian paternalistic or "nudge" policies for the prevention of obesity, and during the fellowship, she will continue to explore ethical issues related to nutrition, health counseling, moral responsibility, and autonomy.
