The newest addition to our Design team is Andreia Ribeiro, a designer who also writes code. She specialises in Data Visualisation and cites Nadieh Bremer as one of her inspirations. Born and raised in Portugal, Andreia speaks Portuguese and English and loves reading the Philip Pullman Dark Materials trilogy.
Before joining Vizzuality, Andreia worked as a Designer and Front End Developer at a Portuguese start up. She has a Masters in Design & Multimedia from the University of Coimbra and her thesis focused on data visualisation. She designed a platform that calculated the benefits of trees in the city of Coimbra and highlighted their importance for people’s wellbeing.
If you have a video call with Andreia, you might get to meet her pet cat Pisco or spot a glimpse of her pet turtle swimming in its tank. When she’s not working, Andreia likes to practise her newly learned tennis skills or bake.
Welcome to the team, Andreia!
