Luke graduated from the University of Southampton with a Zoology degree. After graduating, he took some time out to figure out which career path to take and go travelling around South East Asia. It was then he realised that he had a burning passion for data and the power it holds. After weeks of unsuccessful CV and cover letter applications, he found The Data School and fell in love with everything about the application process. It was the breath of fresh air Luke needed to really spur him on. He aims to use the tools in a wide range of sectors to be able to solve real world problems, in important sectors to him such as conservation. Outside of work, Luke loves to travel and everything about the natural world, as well as being an avid football and basketball fan.

Reference lines can provide great detail to your analysis as well as visual aid. It’s not exactly groundbreaking but something I found exceptionally cool!
Ever wanted to filter out data based on a condition but just didn’t know how? Well, look no further, here I explain exactly how to do that and in what cases it may prove useful.
