Clara Granell, PhD
Complex Systems Researcher & Data Visualization Expert
Hi, I'm Clara!
I'm a Computer Scientist by training, a Complex Systems researcher by choice and a Data Visualization specialist by passion. I live in Tarragona, in sunny Spain, my hometown, a great town filled with history that I hope I can call my home for years to come.
Over the many years of work in my career as a scientist, I've had to face the challenge of presenting very complex data in an understandable, easy and beautiful manner. In science, it is crucial to present your data in a way that it is understood, because the science behind it is often complicated enough, right?
So in my journey of learning how to communicate data in the most effective way, I had to learn the principles of human perception, the do's and don'ts of graphical design, the rules of graphical integrity and excellence... And then I had to choose what's the most appropriate tool to do the job: it had to be a powerful, yet flexible tool, and after trying many different plotting systems in many different programming languages, I finally commited to ggplot2. It took me a while to master all of it, but after doing it I found it was too good for me not to share it with the world.
So here I am, in Udemy, helping you become a better Data Visualization professional with my courses. See you around!
