Hailing from Bogota, Colombia, Ana Sofia chose AUR because it offered a degree program focusing on archaeology.“It was a program that enabled me to explore first-hand archaeological sites and get to know my professors well.AUR also offeredvarious on-site classes as a teaching method, which was a huge advantage for me.” Since graduating, Ana Sofia has earned her MSc in Computational Archaeology from UCL in London, where she specialized in complexity sciences, the use of space, and the simulation of the movement of agents through that space with tools such as ABM modeling. She has also started a PhD program at Sapienza Universita’ di Roma in the Oriental Program.
