Liz Soos graduated with a B.S. in Computational Media with concentrations in People and Interactive Design / Experimental Media in the spring of 2020. She previously worked in software and strategy positions for a satellite company and at Stanley Black & Decker.

She enjoyed the privilege of participating in a student exchange at the IT University of Copenhagen (København) in Denmark during her undergraduate studies. Liz is a heritage Spanish speaker and comes from a mixed-family background. Growing up experiencing different cultures adjusting and accommodating each other, she plans to further her studies researching the role culture lends to resisting and embracing practices of sustainability.

She also serves as the MS-GMC representative on the Graduate Student Senate and is open to discussing and helping push forward initiatives focused on improving mental health and sustainability for the GT community.
