Economics senior Pedro Vieira Marasciulo was one of sixty ISU students who shared their research and scholarship with their peers from across the nation at the 34th annual National Conference on Undergraduate Research, April 12-14. About 4,000 undergraduate students from across the U.S. presented their research at this annual conference, the largest undergraduate research conference in the country.
Viera Marasciulo said, "The presentation (The Digital Service Industry) went well and it was virtual. It was a great opportunity to share my research at the national stage in front of other members of the academic community. For my research, the next step is to write down the paper: first I want to focus on writing a high-quality paper, then I'll focus on what's the best step.
I really hope to see more individuals interested in this area in the future. The Digital Service Industry presents some interesting opportunities regarding data collection, and also it is one of the marketplaces with the fewest regulations."
The NCUR was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, making 2021 the fourth year that ISU students have attended NCUR. Iowa State’s 60 students represent 29 different majors. In addition to presenting their research and scholarship, these students also will have networking and professional development opportunities.
