Mansi Shah is a data scientist, flutist, and environmentalist whose work explores the spaces where artistic rigor and technical curiosity collide. She believes data (like art!) imitates life, and is interested in the profoundly human stories behind the numbers and notes. Mansi has over 10 years of experience as an artist and performer, connecting to diverse audiences through words and music. In addition to her work as a flutist, Mansi has performed in plays, directed ensembles, hosted concerts, and given lectures on topics ranging from creative applications of cloud native geospatial technologies to celebrating diversity in the arts. Her recent project Counterpoints premiered in early 2022 at the Data Through Design exhibition in NYC, and brings together her geospatial and musical perspectives. Mansi works for Planet Labs as a software engineer, helping make the power of daily global satellite imagery more accessible to all.
