About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Emma is a data administrator.

She assists Nesta with data quality and usage, while directly supporting the Innovation Programmes, Health Lab and Challenge Prize Centre teams with their record keeping.

Prior to Nesta Emma worked for Mars Chocolate as a financial reporter and analyst, she joined them after completing her degree in Accounting and Finance at the University of Southampton. She enjoys the challenge of working with data to make it more meaningful and finding new ways to use this information to bring about change.

Outside of work, Emma loves both watching and playing sports and has tried everything from water polo to lacrosse and lots in between. At least once a month she tries to bake something new to add to her ever-expanding recipe list.
