Master's DegreeUniversity of Cape Town

Brisbane, Australia


I am a trilingual development professional and data scientist specialized in translating data into actionable insight for international development organizations. With a career built in global data and technology firms and an academic background in development finance, I bring analytical acumen, strong technical skills, and a keen ability to both extract and contextualise insights from raw information quickly and efficiently. I’ve led and worked with multicultural teams across distances and in person, with work experience on the ground in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. I’m a native English speaker, and professionally proficient in Portuguese and French. My specialty is operational and financial data for international development - particularly for business development and fundraising. However I’m increasingly interested in connecting my work to impact data, particularly with regard to making development ecologically sustainable and culturally conscientious. I’m personally passionate about learning new languages and development in Africa.
