Ben joined The Data School after graduating from the University of York, reading History with a specific interest in medical and colonial history.
Initially, having studied a humanities subject, Ben found it difficult to transition into the world of data… then came The Information Lab! An interest in sporting analytics provided the initial drive towards a career in data. However further research upon what this career could look like, through The Information Lab, cemented his desire for it to become a reality.
Outside of work Ben splits his time between playing sports, seeing friends and of course… The Sunday Telegraph's Polyword. Aside from these hobbies Ben is a capable portrait artist and, if below isn’t evidence enough, an avid blogger.
