Laura Mugeha

Geospatial engineer


We can do anything!

What do you do?

I use data and location-based analysis to provide insights on various issues that are key in decision making. This ranges from urban planning to environmental monitoring and many more sectors!

Why did you choose this field?

I have always been passionate about the achievement of sustainable development in third world countries and noticed the gap in making data-informed decisions by organizations and governments locally.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

Being able to speak at conferences for the past two years.

Why do you love working in STEM?

Working in STEM proves over and over that everything and anything is solvable. I wake up every day looking forward to providing solutions and creating change using tech.

Best advice for next generation?

We can do anything and we should be free to explore all the things that we are curious and passionate about!
