OSGeo Experience and Roles:

OSGeo User.png   Laura is a Geospatial engineer who is passionate about the use of location intelligence to provide sustainable solutions to real-world challenges. With a keen focus on open data and free and open-source software, she has amassed technical experience in the geospatial field while working at various organizations. She also strongly advocates for women in STEM and continuously works with organizations pushing for diversity and inclusion within the various tech and engineering communities. Annually I organize technical workshops and events across Africa and support the implementation of similar projects globally that are aimed at empowering women in STEM.

As the saying goes, "sharing is caring," Laura loves sharing about advances in the Geospatial space. She has organized and conducted training sessions across East Africa, spoken and facilitated workshops at both regional and global conferences: State of the Map(2017,2018,2019), FOSS4G(2018, 2019), GeoWeek 2018.
