Additional Information

Sustainable Development

Involvement in UN Partnerships: Yes
If yes, explain in detail: Currently working with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and Group on Earth Observation (GEO) to implement Digital Earth Africa - an operational data infrastructure providing services to deliver satellite data at scale as a public good for all of Africa. This will provide insights to address key issues including illegal mining, deforestation, water access, climate change, agriculture and food security, and many others. Previous to this, worked for the Global Partnership on Sustainable Development Data on addressing SDGs in multiple countries.
Affiliation with other organizations: Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data; Group on Earth Observations; Geoscience Australia; World Economic Forum;
