    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Students will be working with me on a specific project which I am currently working on with some collaborators outside UIC. Students will be assisting me in collecting data, designing and implementing algorithms to analyze data, and also reporting results. Throughout the project, I expect students can understand some algorithms about data mining, social network analysis. In addition, I expect students can improve their programming skills, their team working skills, and their writing skills.
