Anna Patterson – VP of Engineering at Google

As one of the most important people in tech development, we are delighted to welcome Anna Patterson to The Summit Dublin this November. As the VP of Engineering at Google, Patterson oversees significant tech developments at the company and in the past was key to developing Google’s ad-matching technology. However, her commitments go past overseeing exciting innovations at Google. Due to her love of maths, she is a devoted trustee of the Mathematical Science Research Institute and Harvey Mudd College, while she also has a keen interest for promoting the advancement of women’s causes locally and globally; co-founding the political organisation Progressive Women Silicon Valley.
