Anika develops custom data visualizations that distill complex analytical findings into compelling data-driven stories and graphics. She also collaborates with colleagues around the globe on research topics that benefit from spatial analysis using GIS and other analytical tools. Before joining IEEFA, Anika provided data analysis, visualization, and spatial analysis for various organizations and government agencies. Projects included supporting FEMA-funded flood map modernization and atlas production at the U.S. Census Bureau. Her interest in maps and graphics began during her first career, in international development and relief operations. Anika holds a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from Northern Arizona University and a Master’s degree in Geography from the University of Oregon. When not wrangling data, she enjoys managing her urban micro-farm in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
