Lane Rasberry's money in this edit

summary - I will use my part of the budget to hire research contractors

I am a co-applicant in this, Lane Rasberry, user:bluerasberry. There is a budget for me of US$9000.

I will manage this budget but it will not go to pay me personally. I am a researcher at the School of Data Science at the University of Virginia and I have my own salary. It is difficult with university administration to bring in funding for myself in my university role, and also, I can join this project in my usual role without personal sponsorship.

At my university for this kind of research US$9000 is a relatively small budget. Here is how I propose to spend it -

  1. Collaborate with Fernando, the primary contact for this project, to hire a researcher or contractor in Brazil to do this. I would manage this person without pay to myself. I prefer the money to go to Brazil where the wiki community for research is generally better organized than my country the United States, and the money goes further
  2. Hire a researcher anywhere else besides the United States, where the money goes further
  3. As a stable fallback measure, I can hire student researchers at my university, the University of Virginia. There are standard rates for undergraduate and graduate students, and depending on other hires, I can reliably get good students here. It is more expensive than other options and with wiki, I like supporting researchers outside the United States, but sometimes reliability and familiar networks are best.

Happy to support and participate. Bluerasberry (talk) 21:41, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply
