I have created my first GitHub page which was far easier than anticipated. There is much work to be done, but I used RMarkdown to compile data from Johns Hopkins and Covidtracking.com which can now be found here.
Please feel free to provide comments about how to improve the github page and/or the Markdown script.
We can see that many states are starting to decline in terms of newly confirmed cases; however, more needs to be done. Across states, we still need much more testing and tracing. For a full description of its importance, see the work by Brookings on TRACE: https://www.brookings.edu/about-trace/
It has been some time since I posted last, but I am still tracking COVID-19 and analyzing infection and death rates and governmental responses to it.
I'm working on integrating R Markdown into Weebly, but until then this provides just a flavor of what I am working on:
I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). I completed my Ph.D. in Public Policy and Public Administration at George Washington University.
