Emer, whose background includes communications and journalism, is former director of digital projects for the Greater London Authority.
She holds a BA in History and Sociology from University College Cork and an MPA from Warwick Business School. She was named in Wired’s Top 100 Digital Power Influencers List 2011
When appointed to her current role in December 2011, she said: “I have been fortunate to have been working in the field of open data and open governance for the past two years in my role as Director of Digital Projects in the Greater London Authority.
“In that time my focus has been on London as a city and how collaboration between technologists and the state can create conditions where innovation flourishes to the benefit of the citizen. I hope my experience in London will benefit GDS as it continues its journey to embed digital by default across the whole of Government.”
