ARISE Colloquium 2020
Sakeef and Sardor gathered data from Citi Bike’s database to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted transportation in New York City. They used data management and programming tools such as Python and Mapbox to analyze trends in ridership, identify popular destinations, and depict fluctuations in Citi Bike revenue. Results will be used in the ongoing research on the impacts of COVID-19 on New York City’s transportation network performed by the UrbanMITS laboratory in conjunction with the C2SMART Center.
The annual ARISE program is a free, full-time, seven week program for academically motivated, 10th and 11th grade New York City students with a demonstrated interest in science, technology, engineering and math. The program includes college level workshops and seminars, a high level research experience in participating NYU faculty labs, and mentoring in that placement by a graduate or postdoctoral student. Students from demographic groups underrepresented in STEM disciplines and careers, including women, students of color and those from low–income backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
