Anna is a visionary whose main goal in life is finding systematic sense in vast amounts of data.
Tons of data on the health and economic status of countries is collected and published yearly. Anna’s focus is to make this global public data easier to understand and use.
Anna co-founded Gapminder, which is an organization with a mission to “fight devastating ignorance with fact-based worldviews everyone can understand”.
One of Gapminder’s most successful projects is Trendalyzer, a software which revolutionized the usability of statistical data. Trendalyzer was sold to Google, and Anna worked there to apply her expertise as a User Experience Designer.
Anna is back at Gapminder, making data easily interpretable. She is Head of User Expereince and Design at Gapminder. She holds a Master’s Degree in Social Sciences with major in Sociology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Photography.
