About The COVID Tracking Project

The COVID Tracking Project collects and publishes the data required to understand the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States. Our data is used by Johns Hopkins, the White House, The New York Times, and countless other organizations and individuals.

My primary role as a Product Lead has been to work on race and ethnicity data for covidtracking.com. This includes identifying needs, collaborating with our partner organization, and designing and managing website projects.

The COVID Racial Data Tracker

The Racial Data Tracker was created when it became clear that COVID-19 was impacting racial and ethnic communities very differently. However, not much was being done to track this information.

I've contributed to and managed several projects for the Racial Data Tracker as both a UX designer and product lead. This includes creating the home page for the Racial Data Tracker, introducing new advocacy tools, and iterating on the website to improve site usability and how we share findings.

UX Research

I was the co-lead for our first ever UX research initiative at The COVID Tracking Project. The research goal was to better understand our data users, and our findings helped inform multiple data and website initiatives throughout the organization.

My contributions for this project include: assembling and training volunteer interviewers; conducting user interviews; leading a session to synthesize findings; and finalizing the written research report.

Site Search Design

I designed and introduced global site search to covidtracking.com, including ensuring that this was an accessible experience. Within two days of launching this feature, over 20,000 searches were performed on the site.
