Originally from Central Scotland, Bruce graduated from the University of York and became an IT consultant specialising in training, analytical modelling and database design across several fields, including legal, actuarial and further education projects.
Bruce’s experience combines development and application of sophisticated analytical techniques with expertise in Road Safety intelligence. He first moved into road safety as an Accident Analyst with Thames Valley Police, before becoming Senior Data Analyst with the Thames Valley Safer Roads Partnership. In 2009 he was appointed as Project Manager for the Department for Transport funded project to develop MAST Online, the web-based tool which revolutionised data in road safety by combining powerful analysis of national crash data with socio-demographic insight into people involved in crashes. He is now the Technical and Analysis Director of Road Safety Analysis.
Along with a substantial technical skill base, Bruce is also an experienced and effective conference speaker and technical trainer. He lives in Banbury, Oxfordshire with his two children. His spare time pursuits include theatre acting and directing, as well as playing board games and running large scale multi player wargames.
