    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    I have a variety of research projects underway including

    *Student Privacy and Learning Analytics (the university is capturing data about students, what do students think about that?)

    *Data Policy (the university generates a lot of research and that requires policies to manage it all -- what are current policies?)

    *Women/Work/COVID-19 (I have a bibliography of 1500+ news articles related to this topic. There are a number of questions we could ask related to women's studies, linguistics, labor relationships, childcare and more)

    *Data management jobs and education

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 3

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Junior or Senior standing preferred

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    The student may be tasked with data gathering or data entry and cleanup; literature review and summaries; data verification and analysis. The student will be expected to work independently and follow directions accurately. There is a lot of room for exploration with extant datasets.
