Stuart Lynn is our data science lead. He helps our nonprofit partners use data to better serve their communities, conducts independent research and develops new tooling that enhances the use of open data.
Stuart is a firm believer that access to good data and tools can be a game-changer, having previously spent 6 years working at the Zooniverse, the world’s largest collection of online citizen science projects, and also headed up data science at CARTO, a company that specializes in making spatial data and analysis accessible.
Stuart holds a PhD in Astrophysics and a Masters in Mathematical Physics from the University of Edinburgh. When not working at Data Clinic you can find Stuart buried in his side projects, including building tools to explore historic maps, creative coding and tinkering with hardware.
