Each year, the program offers a small number of stipends to allow some URAP apprentices to continue work on their mentors' research projects over the summer. To be eligible, students must have been working with the same mentor for at least two semesters. Mentors nominate their students. These stipends are generously supported by a number of private donors.

Geo-analysis of Research Papers

Summer 2017

Richard Meng : Computer Science & Statistics

Mentor: Abhishek Nagaraj/Haas School of Business

We are trying to analyze the geographical properties of research papers from 1970s to now. The papers we choose to analyze are primarily about conducting researches on regions & lands. Therefore, through analyzing the geographical properties of authors, conference address, researching scope, etc., we would like to find a relation between where the paper is written and where the paper is discussing about. For example, whether a paper written by a Berkeley Professor has more/less probability to discuss Berkeley region or Greater Bay Area region.
