Project description

The larger goal of the project is to analyze how people present themselves on the web. We conduct our exploratory analysis on researchers who have a personalized web profile online. Broadly we intend to categorize and find patterns in how these webprofiles are structured and designed, in both form and content.


We found significant correlations of researchers’ professional attributes (such as number of affiliations), as reflected on their web pages, with their age and gender. Furthermore, it was found that certain personality traits have a strong correlation with the researchers’ department.
