COVID-19 Analytics

The COVID-19 pandemic has generated significant interest in data visualization, mainly from the media’s, and governmental and research organizations’ use of visualizations to inform the public.

This is a collection of smaller sub-projects, including the following:

Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic: RAMP

The Royal Society is supporting efforts to model the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and guide the UK’s response. The Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) initiative brings expertise from a diverse range of disciplines, including visualization of which Bangor is a member of, to support the pandemic modelling community already working on Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Bangor team is involved in efforts of public engagement and creating interfaces suitable for informing the public of the outputs of the modelling stages, as well as more general data-driven guidance on COVID-19.

Two Bangor University Undergraduate Internships

Bangor University’s undergraduate internship scheme provides opportunities for undergraduate students to gain paid, graduate level work experience in the University’s Academic Schools and Service Departments. This year, along with Prof Jonathan Roberts, we are supervising two undergraduates who explore the use of Immersive Visualization for analysing COVID-19 data.

One MSc Dissertation

One of the students I supervise uses COVID-19 data in cross-device visualization set-ups, between large displays and smartphones.

Links to visualization prototypes will be posted here, as they become available/public.
