Stuart studied physics at school, but then switched to astrophysics—because he found it easier to explain to others. He enjoyed getting regular people involved in scientific discovery and bridging the gap between scientific data and how it works in real-life applications. Joining CARTO was the perfect marriage of his passion and his purpose.
One of the things Stuart appreciates most about CARTO is the dedication to open source data. Stuart and his team use what they’ve learned from one client’s challenge and bring that back to the core tool with the idea that someone else with similar issues might be able to solve it on their own.
“For me, there’s great enjoyment and fulfillment about producing tools that allow people to do hard things.”
“We’re all problem solvers, so when we see people taking what we’ve produced and solving problems with it and getting real insights, that really kind of fires us up and makes us eager to create new things.”
