Kieran graduated from the University of Southampton with a Masters in Physics with Astronomy in 2020. While studying he gained experience working with data using Python to analyse data collected in lab sessions. Finding satisfaction in evaluating datasets and discerning insights from them influenced his decision to begin a career in data analytics.
Upon graduating he spent time building up a more practical base of skills to put towards entering the field, aiming to have knowledge across the stages of a data workflow including SQL, the Python library Pandas for data-scraping, and Power BI as an early foray into data visualisation.
His first exposure to Tableau came during the application process for The Data School, to which he was primarily drawn by the extensive opportunities for both professional and personal growth on offer. His prior knowledge of Power BI helped in quickly adapting to and learning the basics of Tableau.
In his spare time, he enjoys running and playing role-playing games with a group of friends online.
