Daniel ellis


Daniel works across Lab projects to ensure data is put to the best possible use and is communicated effectively.

Daniel has spent the last 7 years working with data from local authorities, charities and service providers. Through these data he provides insights about child and family well-being that inform decision-making in strategy development and service design. He works closely with our partners to understand the requirements and functions of data, how it fits with an organisation’s wider strategy, and how to best present it given the questions asked and intended audience. His passion is for finding ways to make the presentation of data, at the right time and in the right way, an intervention in itself and not just a measurement tool.

Daniel joined the Dartington Social Research Unit in 2012 after completing a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Forensic Psychology. He took up the position of Data and Design Specialist for the Lab in April 2017.
