Gala co-founded and works as a Data Scientist at Diagonal. Recognising that technology is only a small part in the cog that is designing, evaluating and understanding cities, Diagonal aims to improve the quality of life in cities.

Previously, Gala worked as Head of Analytics at a start-up in the civic and property tech space in Melbourne, Australia. Her technical career has focused mostly on working with non-technical people to develop analytics for measurement, in many different contexts, to help inform decisions.

Outside of work Gala gets involved with organisations that try to elevate the voices of those who are marginalised – mostly in, but not limited to, technology. She is always in search of interesting projects, particularly in the intersection of data + analytics, community building, and technical products that enhance equity in our society.
