Data for Impact

I offer pro-bono support for cutting-edge,
impactful data solutions.

Turning Data Into Insights

I lead the data visualization and online platform work for our Climate and Ocean programs for the World Resources Institute, a leading global environmental think tank.

In my spare time, I help organizations to have more impact by sharing my knowledge and expertise on turning data innovation into impact. I provide pro-bono consultancy advice for UN organizations, international NGOs, universities, foundations or other major mission-driven organizations who require open data and visualization strategies.
