Daniel Kandie


  • Country: Kenya
  • Course: MSc Social Data Science
  • College: Wadham College
  • Scholarship: Standard Bank Chairman’s Scholarship

A passion for economics and technology combined with a curiosity about the power of big data led Daniel to apply for the Master of Social Data Science at Oxford. He recently completed an undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia and aims to use his time in Oxford to strengthen his knowledge of theories and concepts in social data science. Upon completion, Daniel plans to work in the Kenyan public sector to develop data driven public policies to improve economic growth in the country. Ultimately, he hopes to apply his research to the question- how can data be used to solve the most challenging problems in Kenya, East Africa and Africa as a whole?
