Having studied physics at university, Alex quickly realized the importance of effective data visualization which allowed for the converting of mass information into insightful, actionable conclusions. Having since worked in both large and small companies, the power of data viz in a business context has not been lost on him.
Discovering Tableau through a friend’s blog, Alex saw the immediate advantages it brings over traditional spreadsheets and programs. Soon after, he joined the Information Lab’s Data School.
In his spare time, Alex is a keen sportsman and outdoors enthusiast (particularly in his native Yorkshire) and is always on the lookout for spectacular scientific visualizations.
