Naledi Hollbruegge

Naledi is a Social and Cultural Psychology graduate interested in the use of data to help understand societal dynamics and address social issues. She sees data visualisation as the key to communicating this information in a way that is comprehensible to everyone, regardless of their educational background, and thus a powerful tool to achieve meaningful change. Before coming to The Data School she worked in a variety of social research jobs.

Naledi enjoys creative and crafty activities such as baking, sewing, acting, photography and crocheting. Spending hours on creating a great colour scheme is never a waste of time.

Her favourite sport is volleyball. She will claim this is because of the team-work and technical aspects of the sport. But really it’s because there is minimal running involved.

Fun with parameters: An introduction

Parameters allow you to interject dynamic values to your visual. They are often used as filters but are themselves variables. The difference is that filters trim data, while parameters control the value of a variable. This variable is used in a calculation in order to give more control to the end user.
