Chris Jones

Population Forecaster

Chris is a population forecaster having previously worked as a demand forecaster and analyst in the utilities sector in Melbourne. As well as working across the sector to provide advice that fed into the operation and development of significant infrastructure, he has explored and developed new modelling techniques and software. He joined .id in 2019 and produces forecasts for councils across the country. He is fascinated with the ways that cities develop and change, and the ways that this can be captured and explored.

Outside of .id, Chris practices kid-wrangling, tinkering in data science, trying to grow fruit and vegetables and going for the occasional bike ride.
