After Dark Online: From Data to Action - Livestream

data exploCollecting and visualizing data allows us to see critical issues: a surge in COVID cases, toxins in garden soil, where the climate is warming fastest.  Tonight, we hear (and see!) three stories of how data visualization is being used to detect, inform, and spur action on COVID-19, environmental justice, and climate change. 

This program features:  

Hidden Complexities of Visualizing COVID-19 with Amanda Makulec:  Amanda Makulek advocates for and explores ways of visualizing health data responsibly. She worked with data in global health programs for eight years before joining Excella as data visualization lead.

Visualizing and Personalizing Climate Change with Nadja Popovich:  Nadja Popovich uses data and graphics to explain the science of climate change and its real-life impacts. She joined the New York Times climate desk in 2017.

Place-Based Visualizations and Information Design Efforts for and with Communities with Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta: Dr. Ramirez-Andreotta is an assistant professor of Soil, Water and Environmental Science (SWES) at the University of Arizona.
