We are seeking a graduate student with web design experience to support data visualization for a research team studying biometrics and immigration. The team has developed a database with law and policy information and created graphic representations in Powerpoint to illustrate policy pathways for stakeholders in various immigration contexts. We aim to translate these static illustrations into an accessible, interactive web-based tool to help the public understand how DNA is used in different immigration proceedings.
