Lucy thought she was going to be a journalist and instead, ended up teaching journalists how and why to work with data at Open Knowledge. She was one of the editors of the (first) Data Journalism Handbook. She later lead the successful School of Data programme which extended technical training to non-profit organisations across over 20 countries.
Lately, she has focussed on delivery of software projects. She worked as a product manager for eHealth Africa on health related software rolled out in West Africa. She worked as a delivery manager for mySociety on the EveryPolitician project, attempting to get crucial basic information about all legislators worldwide into Wikidata. She now works for ThoughtWorks as a Business Analyst with a focus on machine learning and data-focussed projects.
She writes about her learnings at TechtoHuman.
