Bio: 

Yue Zhang is a first year PhD student in Information Studies at Drexel University. Currently she works as research assistant with Dr.Jane Greenberg at Metadata Research Center of Drexel University (http://cci.drexel.edu/mrc/). Before her PhD study, She received M.S. degree in Scientific Computing from New York University and B.A. degree in Mathematics and Economics from DePauw University. Her research interests include data mining, social network analysis, machine learning, and linked data.
Project Description: The intern will work with the Director of Community Engagement and Outreach and the co-lead of the DataONE Sustainability and Governance Working Group to critically evaluate the current engaged DataONE community. Information from mailing lists, social media accounts, webinar participation and website activity will be used to identify the outer range of the DataONE community. Calibration of user profiles across accounts will enable a more parsimonious estimate of the community and the intern will then work with these data to construct network visualization, breaking down clusters by stakeholder group and mode of engagement with DataONE. These data will help inform the project with respect to target markets, future product development and resource allocation.
