Laura Grau worked as an Events Manager for the past 6 years in an international research center in Barcelona. During these years she gained a solid background organizing a wide variety of events from seminars, workshops, outreach activities, open house events to international conferences. Her responsibilities in each project ranged from the conceptual to the closure phase. Laura has a Bachelor of Arts in Business Tourism from ESADE Business School and a Master's degree in Project Management from the University of Barcelona. She is a native Spanish speaker, and also speaks English, basic French and Italian. In her spare time she can be found biking around San Francisco, watching foreign films, tasting new delicacies, or practicing yoga.
Laura is committed to organizing OWASP AppSec conferences all over the world and making them the best gathering spot to discuss the state of the art in application security.
Laura will be starting tomorrow - Monday (July 29) and working to quickly get up to speed with the global events we have in the works as well as the OWASP processes and workflows (she will certainly be creating new ones of her own as well).
