`man sudo`:

|       sudo utilizes the following environment variables:
|       [...]
|       SUDO_USER       Set to the login of the user who invoked sudo
|       SUDO_UID        Set to the uid of the user who invoked sudo
|       SUDO_GID        Set to the gid of the user who invoked sudo
|       [...]

Try it:

  $ whoami
  $ sudo printenv | grep julian
