Lyndsey Pereira-Brereton

Data Visualisation Editor
Bank of England

My background is in economics and from the first time I drew a demand and supply curve in my A-level class I loved graphs and charts. Their ability to explain complicated theories or to tell stories from data is truly compelling. I have been lucky enough to build my career around this, working as the data visualisation lead in the Statistics and Advanced Analytics divisions at the Bank of England. I now currently work in communications using data visualisation to help explain the economy and the Bank’s work to the public. My mission is to create simple, beautiful charts that tell interesting stories to engage and inform people. I want people to love charts as much as I do!  In pursuit of this mission I have just started a personal blog using charts to answer everyday questions:http://the-chartist.com/
