Mischa Andrews joined SEI in December 2017 as Web Editor. She is based in Stockholm but supports the communications team globally, focusing on the SEI website and social media.
Mischa studied broadly across science and the humanities and has worked professionally with the web for over a decade. Prior to joining SEI she was a consulting web developer, designer and user researcher for companies including PayPal, PostNord and Ericsson. She has also been a web advisor, producer and communicator for organisations including the Australian Academy of Science, the Clean Energy Regulator and the Space Policy Unit (precursor to the Australian Space Agency).
Although she works as a generalist, Mischa’s passion is improving experiences from the user’s perspective. She achieves this with user testing, platform improvements, staff training, and the creation and curation of content in various formats. She is especially interested in making sure the web is accessible for disabled people.
Mischa has two bachelor degrees from the Australian National University – a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and a Bachelor of Science in computer science and psychology. She also has a diploma in game development.
