Ramakrishnan, a professor of public policy and political science at the University of California, Riverside, directs the research initiative AAPI Data, a nationally recognized publisher of demographic data and policy research on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, or AAPIs.
AAPI Data recently partnered with the the national membership organization Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy, or AAPIP, to create and release a simple yet powerful mapping tool.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this mapping tool to help the work of policymakers and community organizations alike,” Ramakrishnan said.
Sunny Shao, a political science doctoral student at UCR and lead researcher at AAPI Data, headed the effort to develop the mapping tool.
