Put Research to Work
Doing undergraduate research, Abdalah El-Barrad worked to create a map of racial and ethnic minority population density in Ohio.
El-Barrad was an Undergraduate Research Scholar with the George V. Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Service.
The project demonstrated differences in minority population density through a color-coded scale, allowing users to analyze differences in population demographics at both a large scale, comparing differences across Ohio counties, and a small scale, examining block-by-block demographics in individual counties.
"At the Voinovich School, I gained real world skills that have helped prepare me for industry and academia while creating a positive impact on the world," says El-Barrad, a double-major in Economics and Applied Mathematics.
