He has been the data analytics and visualisation specialist with the Digital Scholarship Group in the Northeastern University Libraries (Boston, Massachusetts, USA) since November 2015. His experiences living and studying in Japan have deeply informed his general philosophy about data visualisation: visualisation is constructed space, where data are manifold and our choices in design directly inform how those data are interpreted and used.
