After completing a degree in International Relations in 2017, Diego worked in a consulting company focused on attracting foreign investments for the development of sustainable projects in Chile. There he discovered the importance of data-driven decisions and decided to start learning data analysis tools during its free time. After six Excel online courses he finally discovered Tableau, but he did not know where to start. It was during this period when he decided to move from Chile to the UK and by some ‘divine intervention’ he stumbled across The Information Lab online.
Before moving to the UK, Diego was always using every opportunity he had to travel. He volunteered in China and Greece as an English teacher and did one year in the UK as an exchange student before deciding to move indefinitely.
Outside the classroom, he likes to interact with the community in Twitter, play boardgames and read. The book that inspired him to start his data career was Factfullness by the Gapminder Foundation.
