Laura is a curious learner and communicator. She is fascinated by technology, international development and grammar rules. Before joining The Engine Room, Laura worked as a communications consultant to mission-driven organisations, as the Editorial Director of a social enterprise in India, and as program coordinator at the Information Program of Open Society Foundations. You can usually find Laura running around outside, exploring the nooks and crannies of New Orleans, or adopting new hobbies (currently, boxing and learning the mandolin).
Laura leads communications efforts at The Engine Room, managing our external communications channels, finding the best ways to distill our research and build knowledge externally and internally.
