Andy Kirk (www.visualisingdata.com/about/)

Author, 'Data Visualisation: A Handbook for Data Driven Design' and curator of one of the best collections of visualisation resources out there (www.visualisingdata.com/resources)

Andy may be the UK's most experienced freelance data visualiser. Based in Yorkshire, he's been a consultant, trainer, teacher, author, speaker, researcher and editor for over a decade.

A business analyst and information manager at CIS Insurance, West Yorkshire Police and the University of Leeds, he discovered data visualisation in 2007 and has gone on to work with organisations including Google, CERN, Electronic Arts, the EU Council, Hershey, and McKinsey.

Maintaining an active academic interest, he worked on an AHRC project on public data visualisation literacy, as well as taught on the Information Visualisation Masters at the Maryland Institute College of Art, the MSc Business Analytics programme at Imperial College Business School, and at UCL School of Management.

His award-winning website has tracked the rising popularity of the subject and is now a popular reference offering contemporary discourse, design techniques, and vast collections of examples and resources.

While he's in town, Andy is running a whole-day workshop teaching DV techniques (which he's done almost 300 times in 27 countries!). EDVM members are entitled to a 10% discount (please message organisers for the code) upon registration at:
