Sofia Cavaness

Sofia Cavaness is a graduate student currently working towards getting her M.A. in the field of organizational communication with an emphasis on cultural studies. Sofia’s interest lies in exploring the organizational dynamics of high reliability organizations (HROs) within natural resource agencies. Her research looks at the articulation of organizational values and how such values shape public engagements. She is interested in studying the ways that these organizations deal with identity, right and wrong and how personnel get cultural interlopers to interact with the environment.

Sofia is also interested in examining non-traditional organizational frameworks to better understand and interpret the mechanisms through which these unique organizations operate.

With a profound love for the outdoors and a deep commitment to understanding organizational dynamics, Sofia seeks to bridge her personal passions with her academic pursuits.
