Data Impact Lab

Students are currently working on a range of projects with external partners. Our focus has been on assisting Californians whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic and increased unemployment. In particular, we are assisting efforts to ensure they have sufficient food. Projects include:

  • California Pulse. We are working with state officials and the state's food banks to provide them with data and analysis needed to support their decision making.
  • Bay Area Community. We are working with networks of Bay Area social workers to provide them and their clients with up-to-date data in an interactive map with: food, legal, mental health, medical, and cash assistance resources.

Students interested in participating in the Bay Area Community project or other food-related projects can contact unBox. Technical skills sought include: data wrangling skills to transform data, and web development skills using JavaScript and Vue.js.
