Pablo spent almost the last 9 years in Spain as Market Research Analyst, working specially with Healthcare and Telco companies.
After looking for new tools to maximize added value in data analysis, he discovered Tableau and loved how intuitive and fun was searching for insights in comparison with traditional tools, so decided to make Tableau the next challenge in his career. Searching for the best way to develop these new skills, discovered The Information Lab Data School, and decided to move to London and learn from the best.
Having studied sociology and marketing analytics, Tableau & Alteryx offers Pablo the best combination to satisfy his curiosity in human behavior and the use of data to understand the world better.
Outside of work, Pablo loves live music, sports, travelling and searching in London places to eat typical spanish food.
