Declan Trezise

Declan Trezise is the Director of Applied Engineering for Basis Technology, based out of the UK. He has many years of experience working out the thorniest problems of converting unstructured text into actionable insight, and communicating complex technical concepts to audiences at all levels and walks of life—from international royalty and heads of state to rock stars.

Prior to Basis Technology, he was with Monster.com’s Government Solutions division, where he delivered the UK’s largest job board, Universal Jobmatch for the Department for Work and Pensions. Before that, he was the face of cybersecurity for BAE Systems Applied Intelligence (formerly known as Detica) as the manager and presenter at the prestigious NerveCentre facility.

Declan trained as a theoretical physicist at the University of Exeter and as a graduate, cut his teeth as a developer across a range of technologies in ‘spooky’ applications from network probes for lawful interception to data retention and querying systems for largest telecommunications companies in Europe.
