Joe joined The Information Lab after completing his degree in economics from the University of Nottingham. He enjoyed developing his data analysis skills over several university projects, in particular his dissertation, but rarely explored the different ways to visualize results. After finding out about the Data School and using Tableau for the first time, he realized the power the software had to enable businesses to effectively explore and visualize data.
After graduating, Joe spent the summer in America working as a camp counsellor and watersports instructor. This opportunity made him realise the importance of finding a job he genuinely enjoyed. As he spent more time on Tableau for his application, he soon realized that a career in data analytics was the right choice. In his spare time Joe enjoys watching and playing football.
