Ana Pinheiro Privette is a senior program manager with Amazon’s Sustainability group. She
joined the Sustainability Science and Innovation team in September 2017 as the program
lead for the Amazon Sustainability Data Initiative (ASDI), a program that seeks to leverage
Amazon’s scale, technology, and infrastructure to help create more global innovation for
sustainability. ASDI is a Tech-for-Good project focused on democratizing access to key data
and analytical capabilities to anyone working in the sustainability space.

Ana was trained as an environmental engineer and as an earth sciences researcher at the
New University of Lisbon (Portugal) and at MIT. She did her doctoral research work at NASA
Goddard Space Flight Centre and as part of her project, she spent a couple of years running
scientific field work sites in Africa to support a NASA international field campaign. While
working at NOAA, Ana worked on the US National Climate Assessment (NCA) project
focusing on bringing more transparency and traceability of the data sources supporting this
climate report.

After spending most of her career at NASA and NOAA as a scientist, she led
projects for the White House climate portfolio, including the Obama Climate Data Initiative
(CDI) and the Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness (PREP), both focused on
delivering better access and use of US Federal climate data to support researchers and
decision makers.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101035497
