Hidden Patterns and Drivers of Academic Scholarship

Welcome to the website of team MAVERICKS.

         We are improving a data visualization Interface for depicting Scholarly growth of researchers in the US. The UH Computational Physiology Lab in collaboration with Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management have been amassing a comprehensive biographic, bibliographic, and funding dataset for academic researchers in the United States. The dataset is publicly visualized via the Scholar Plot interface www.scholarplot.com. This dataset provides unique capabilities to computational researchers in the science of science area.

         The objective of our project is to provide a dynamic, interactive and animated visualization for the database, with easier acceessability and understandability. The project goes deep into the aspect of hidden pattern detection and BigData visualization.
