In a previous life, Lisa trained to be a physicist and mathematician, as a research assistant at UNSW and a college fellow at the University of Chicago. Lisa uses her data analysis and programming skills for social good, from her involvement with the Civic Tech community in Chicago to her current role as an economic analyst with the state government.  Lisa also uses her teaching experience as a regular volunteer with a local refugee community.

Lisa believes in broad-based participation as a key cornerstone to a healthy democracy, and in building platforms for amplifying the voices of marginalised peoples.
