Jamie brings a background in data governance, data strategy, and data science to the Grantbook team. Prior to joining Grantbook as an Implementation Specialist, Jamie worked with various government, commercial, and philanthropic clients to design and build robust data infrastructure.
After completing a BSc in Politics and International Relations, Jamie spent four years doing research and consulting work around data sharing and data governance at the Open Data Institute. While working on the challenges of sharing data between people and organizations, he met lots of people doing really interesting things with data—which sparked a desire to pursue more practical hands-on data science, analysis, and visualization skills. That desire eventually led him to the University of Oxford, where he earned a Masters in Social Science of the Internet, exploring the application of cutting-edge computational social science methodologies, including social network analysis, agent-based modelling, and big data analytics.
Following the completion of his Masters, Jamie relocated from the UK to British Columbia, and joined the Grantbook team as the first fully remote employee.
