MRSA data visualization

March 1st, 2013

This infographic is intended to give the reader an overview of some of the factors that contribute to the evolution of resistant strains of staph, levels of MRSA resistance in the United States, and the rate at which new antibiotics are being approved for use. I am currently working on programming the finished interactive version of this that will allow the viewer to see data at the state level.

Learning Programming

January 12th, 2013

I am taking a online programming course through Edx because I am hoping to learn some programming skills so that I will be able to create more interactive work. The first project for the class was using Scratch a drag and drop programming language to create a game or an animation. My project was inspired by my friend’s dog’s hatred of skateboards.
