CSDE Research & Highlights

Spotlight on Neal Marquez, Fall 2018 Lightning Talks and Poster Session Winner

The Government of Turkey has prioritized integrating its more than 3.5 million registered Syrian refugees into Turkish society. How successful have they been in incorporating the refugees into the population? CSDE Trainee Neal Marquez  presented research that addresses this question at the fall CSDE Lightning Talks and Poster Session, and received the award for best poster. He will also present this novel work in the Social Media and Population Processes Session at the PAA annual meeting this April and at the Data 4 Refugees (D4R) Workshop in Istanbul.
