What I do

Cath is the Quantitative Research Fellow at Nesta, working in the Policy and Research team. She is interested in scraping, analysing and visualising complex data.


Prior to Nesta, Cath was an Economist at Morgan Stanley, covering the UK economy. She has also worked as a senior economic analyst at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand in its research and modelling teams.

Cath has recently completed a PhD in Economics at the University of Cambridge. Her thesis evaluated a selection of public policies in the UK, including the 2008 temporary cut in VAT.

The field of interactive data visualisation is progressing at a rapid pace. This presentation, delivered at Nesta's annual away day, summarises the latest trends within the field and provides a guide for getting started.
