Who are the lab people?

As we work on such a variety of different projects in different sectors, we may from time-to-time bring in experts to assist us. However, the following people are the core lab members.

NOTE: We are currently in the middle of a recruitment process for the posts of Lab Manager and Data Innovation Specialist. We hope to have these positions filled as soon as possible.

James Austin
James Austin I am the coder of the team, developing our mapping/data visualisation tools and furthering our knowledge and integration of Open Data. I have been working at Trafford Council since 2006 as a performance analyst for education attainment data. Prior to joining Trafford I worked as a web applications developer for 8 years on a diverse range of projects from e-commerce to content management systems. My role in the lab draws on my skills and experience from both backgrounds, giving me a good understanding of both the technical and data sides of the work we do.
