Tell us a little about your background
I always had a strong interest in Data analytics and Data visualisation. I was curious to explore the significance of forming real world conclusions using advanced data modelling and simulation. This passion shaped my education, when I undertook my masters degree in Geocomputation at Maynooth University I became inspired using data in a spatial context and lead me to become a Spatial Data Analyst.
Over the course of 5 years, I participated in a range of advanced analytical projects of varying sizes. It was from these different types of projects and industries that I saw the importance of Business Analysis and how being a strong communicator can help in tell a story using cutting-edge data visualisation.
