Nick graduated from the University of Manchester with a Masters in Geology with Planetary Science. Since then, he has worked as an environmental risk modeller for an agrochemical regulation consultancy. His lifelong passion for working with and understanding data led him inexorably to the Data School.

Nick’s enthusiasm for science from an early age guided his path through life. He found enjoyment in deciphering the meaning and story behind various types of data during his education and career, so upon discovering Tableau and the Data School, Nick knew this was the perfect fit for him.

Outside science and data, he’s an avid gamer (both board and video) and plays the guitar. He also enjoys staying active by swimming.

The Dark Arts of Alteryx Reporting Tools

Sometimes data is just meant to be together. When you’ve got identically formatted data spread across multiple sheets, the simplest solution for bringing that into Tableau is a union. I’ll take you through how to set up a union, step by step.
