Cathrine Pihl Lyngstad


Head of the Data section at NAV IT

Cathrine holds a Master of Technology Management from NTNU. In roles such as data scientist, consultant and manager she has been working in the intersection between tech and business – and over the last years increasingly with privacy, ethics and politics. She is eager to see NAV, and the rest of the Norwegian public administration, using data and AI to achieve their goals – in a responsible manner. Cathrine has been with NAV since 2018, and she is now heading the Data section at NAV IT, a department with 80+ data and AI professionals.
