Beautiful Complexity - Andrew Merryweather, Thomson Reuters

A session at HCID2013

Wednesday 17th April, 2013

3:50pm to 4:30pm (GMT)


Thomson Reuters is in the happy - and daunting - position of owning one of the world's great data mountains, a continuously ticking supply of billions of data points covering every aspect of the world's economic and geopolitical status. Designing the tools that financial professionals need to make sense of that data, to sift it, play with it, develop ideas based on it, is an interesting challenge. In this talk we'll take a tour of a couple of those datasets, the design of the tools used to work with them, and the sometimes surprising stories that emerge as we work to see the world through traders' eyes.


Andrew Merryweather
Head of Application Design
F&R Design Team at Thomson Reuters

After a decade studying and practicing archaeology, and a stint managing educational programmes for young homeless people, Andrew found his way into UX via a year spent collaborating on the design of basic skills educational apps for smart phones. Several years designing in the education sector followed, from the creation of e-learning and m-learning packages to heavy learning management systems used by government departments, colleges, and large private companies such as Sainsbury's and McDonalds. At the start of 2011 Andrew moved into the financial sector, joining Thomson Reuters to lead the design of the Interactive Map and other products for the Commodities and Energy business. In 2012 he took up a post in the Financial and Risk division's Design Team where he leads the Application Design group building apps on the Thomson Reuters Eikon platform.
