Perspectives on the Pandemic
Making sense of the issues surrounding the coronavirus can be challenging. Faculty experts in the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Wichita State University are helping clear the confusion.
The presentations in the Perspectives on the Pandemic series featured Wichita State statisticians, historians, public policy experts and chemists. Each event was hosted by Andrew Hippisley, dean of the Fairmount College and professor of linguistics.
Assistant Professor of Geology Zelalem Demissie and his students have created a dashboard of data visualizations that chart the spread of COVID-19 in the state of Kansas. Unique among maps of this type, Demissie's dashboard includes a time-series map animation. The dashboard provides information about the spread but also allows any WSU-related department to add charts of different kinds. Demissie’s students have also created a full story map to accompany the dashboard with video and other resources.
