Introduction & Bio

I’m Laura, a Geospatial engineer passionate about using open technology and open data to create positive change. I currently work at Code for Africa managing africanDRONE and sensors.AFRICA community initiatives. These initiatives pioneer the use of drones and sensors for climate change and deforestation monitoring, water and air quality detection, and pollution detection in African cities, as well as open data collection and mapping.

My Journey with OpenStreetMap strated in 2017 as a contributor and has grown from that to community building. In 2018 together with fellow volunteers, I co-created the OSM community in Kenya and volunteered as the community coordinator till 2022. I also served as a YouthMappers regional ambassador from 2019 to 2022, supporting student-led and faculty-mentored university clubs in East and Central Africa.

I also volunteer with the OpenStreetMap Africa community to organize community activities sucn as the OSM Africa Monthly Mapathon and the State of the Map Africa conference.
