Data & Design
Andrea Brennen is a designer, technologist & recovering architect who lives in Boston with her husband. She builds tools to help people make sense of data, helps start-ups tell better stories, and is generally interested in how we interact with machines that engineers tell us are “intelligent.”
Andrea is VP of Design & Data Visualization at IQT Labs, where she works on new ways to visualize uncertainty, explain AI, and communicate technical concepts in clear and intuitive ways. Previously, at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, she managed the development of new software tools that helped researchers make sense of communication network datasets.
Andrea has an M.Arch in Architectural Design from MIT and bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Studio Art from Grinnell College. Her design work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, the Rotterdam Biennale, the Sao Paolo Biennale, the Canadian Center for Architecture and published internationally. She spends nearly all of her free time rock climbing and hopes to climb V10 someday.
