Daryl has been a member of the Government Statistical Service since 2005. He has written, contributed to or edited numerous government statistical reports and releases across a range of subjects from housing to transport accessibility.
He spent almost ten years at the Department for Transport, heading up the road safety statistics team for around half that time. In this role, Daryl was responsible for the collection, quality assurance, analysis and publication of all data on road traffic collisions for the whole of Great Britain. As part of this, he acted as the UK’s representative to the EU’s CARE group and was on the strategic advisory panel of the OECD’s IRTAD road safety data group. One of the high points of his time at DfT was winning the 2016 Royal Statistical Society’s Excellence in Official Statistics award.
Since moving to DFID in 2017, Daryl has had responsibility for results and data analysis of multilateral effectiveness and currently leads on the collection and disability disaggregated data.
Although he no longer formally works on GIS or geospatial analysis, Daryl is part of DFID’s geospatial community of practice and is actively working with parts of the organisation, especially country offices in places like Afghanistan, to help build their capacity and capabilities.
Daryl completed his PhD at CASA in 2005 and worked with us as a Research Fellow between 2003 and 2004.
