Get in contact to book me as a public speaker: [email protected]
I am based in Oxford in the UK.


I care about getting academic research out to a wider audience. I think it is our duty as academics.

My research focusses on large global problems. I present the empirical evidence of how living standards around the world are changing. My specialty are data visualizations in maps and graphs that make these changes understandable. This work is based on my project OurWorldInData.org.

In my talks I tell the history of our present world focusing on the aspects that matter most for the audience. You can book me as a speaker (in either English or German).

Previous talks have been as short as 10 minutes or as long as 1 hour or more.
