Based in Leeds, Emily is a data analyst who primarily uses spatial datasets and geographic information systems (GIS) to bring efficiencies to projects in the environmental, water, and renewable energy sectors.
In her position, Emily uses software like ArcGIS, FME, and PowerBI to create GIS-focused tools and deliverables for our clients. Most recently, she’s been providing GIS assistance on projects such as Living with Water - Blue Green Plan, Storm Overflow Evidence Project, and Water Resources North by producing webapps, dashboards and maps to improve stakeholder engagement and drive greener engineering strategies. Currently, Emily is piloting a wetlands opportunity mapping tool which aims to identify optimal geographic areas for constructed wetlands to help projects improve water quality, flood resilience, and biodiversity loss. She enjoys both the practicality and creativity that GIS can bring to projects by offering efficient tools and effective visual solutions to projects.
Outside of work, Emily is working towards becoming chartered with the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management and the Royal Geographical Society. She spends her weekends enjoying photography and walking.
