Data Visualization Expert at Miele X
“While I grew up in China, various countries have been my home prior to moving to the Netherlands. I moved to Amsterdam a year ago for my new job at Miele X. Besides traveling and creating new experiences, there are two things that I am especially passionate about: data and art. For me, a career in data visualization perfectly combines these two, allowing one to express their creativity while also thinking analytically. ”
What or Who inspired you to pursue your chosen career?
“I was really touched by the story of Hans Rosling, a true pioneer of data visualization. Not only did he overcome some difficult circumstances in life, but he also chose to look at data in a positive way, detecting trends that we otherwise wouldn’t have noticed. His TED talk inspired me to pursue a career in data visualization, wanting to help people to understand the world better by communicating data in an effective way.”
