Sophia Hamblin Wang


2019 - Women in Innovation

Sophia Hamblin Wang is the Chief Operations Officer of Mineral Carbonation International (MCi), a company that transforms carbon dioxide into building materials and other valuable industrial products. She is a recognised 'Woman in Innovation' as part of the Canberra Innovation Network. She specialises in strategic operations, project management and corporate governance and has worked for MCi since its inception in 2013. In 2018, Sophia competed in the New Materials Summit Pitching Competition in Berlin and was awarded First Place – Resource Innovator of the Year as well as Audience Choice Award.

In response to a lack of affordable housing models for millennials in Australia, Sophia co-founded Kingfisher Cohousing. The group is building a model for cohousing groups of 4-6 small houses to build a community, share land and key facilities and gain entry into the housing market. Sophia led the development of a proposal for the first demonstration of the model to the ACT Government.

Sophia is an official Ambassador of OzHarvest Canberra and a 20-year active member of the Red Cross. In 2017, Sophia created a campaign to run 200km to raise money for the GI Cancer Institute. She raised over $4,000 with a friend and dedicated the fundraiser to her Aunty Helen who was dying from Pancreatic Cancer.
