Graduate Assistant

Sonia Sobrino Ralston

Sonia Sobrino Ralston is a Master of Architecture candidate, and holds an honours Bachelor of Arts in Architecture, Urban Studies, and Human Geography from the University of Toronto. Broadly, Sonia is interested in how architecture intersects with political geography, the history of technology, and protest methods. Her current project focuses on the relationship between architectural design and ownership structures in post-socialist states—specifically Estonia as a case study—as well as how demonstrations in these contexts shape both the built and unbuilt environment. Beyond this, Sonia has worked as an architectural designer, a data visualizer and a graphic designer at various firms and non-profit organizations focused on alleviating social issues. Sonia is excited to learn more about digital humanities and hopes to apply it to both her design and research work.
