Hi there. I am an independent consultant and project manager who works across strategy, user engagement and training of open Earth data. My work is in the intersection between data providers and users aiming to make large volumes of Earth data better accessible and used. For the past eight years, I have worked together with a range of leading companies and intergovernmental organisations in the geospatial and Earth Observation domain to drive data innovation and uptake.

You can find me on Twitter, GitHub and LinkedIn.

Independent Consultant - Strategy, User Engagement, Training

I help data organisations to increase the use of their data and data services by consulting different user communities and developing training on large volumes of Earth data.

PhD research

In 2022, I completed a PhD at the Faculty of Geography at University of Marburg on ‘Big Earth Data - Towards a better understanding of users and their training needs’.
