Fatima Azmat, who is pursuing a Masters in Computational Analysis and Public Policy (MSCAPP) at Harris Public Policy, spent her summer working as a water policy intern at Current, a water innovation company based in Chicago. She worked on analyzing demographic data for the company’s event attendees and presenting visualizations. Additionally, Azmat analyzed water quality data from the Chicago River and web traffic for Current’s social media engagement on various platforms.

“I like that I learned about various innovations in water sustainability efforts and got the opportunity to hone my data analysis skills and sharpen my capabilities to present findings in a non-technical format. I appreciate being familiarized with platforms like Strikingly, Insightly and Hootsuite which aid in updating content and managing subscriber databases.”
