Foreign Student Graduates Interactive Database

Researchers at Pew Research Center received data from a public records request on foreign graduates of U.S. higher educational institutions who worked or sought employment under the U.S. government’s Optional Practical Training (OPT) program after graduation. 

Using various project management tools and techniques, I led this project over three months from initial idea to final product.

Through various brainstorm sessions, I worked with a team of researchers, designers and developers to identify the goal and target users of this data and product: release the data in a digestible and usable format for regional and national journalists and policy makers. From there, I led further discussions on the design and content of the product, which went through various iterations throughout the process.
