Head of Support & Development, The Information Lab
The mix of curiosity, creativity and analytical background, pushed me through the data world, and especially to Tableau & Alteryx.
I think that clear information is crucial in a society and that data visualisation turns numbers and letters into aesthetically pleasing visuals, making it easy to recognise patterns, find exceptions and understand a narrative.
My journey starts with an undergraduate degree in Business Administration in Florence, Italy, part of which I did in London as an Erasmus student. Then I studied Financial markets in Bologna.
In Jan 2015 I moved to London to develop my tech skills and I got enthusiastic about data. In Dec 2015 I took part of the second intake of the Data School UK, learning to use Tableau, Alteryx, SQL & project management skills.
I have been working as a consultant in the tech sector for more than 4 years now, helping organisations with their data every day. I also spend lots of my time finding opportunities with charities for my small volunteering team in my company. We want to use our skills for initiatives that have a social impact in the world.
