Drs. Manlu Liu and Yang Yu, for instance, have both received grants to hire undergraduate students to conduct research.
Liu will work with an undergraduate student to continue exploring the sustainability of community-based open source. More specifically, they will be examining relevant literature, collecting data, coding and analysis, and illustrating the results of their work.
Yu and the MIS student working with her will be assisting in ‘measuring CEO narcissism in earnings-based conference calls’. Their work will entail selecting, implementing, and testing text-mining algorithms; as well as natural language processing techniques.
