When tasked with using the dataset from the Concordia Explore database of researchers I took an approach based on relationships.  It is a whimsical teen-magazine style questionnaire that pairs you with your potential best researcher pal.

I like the contrast of very serious research, loads inter-related tags, and the ultimate question; who should you go get a coffee with and talk about their research? Who is your PFF?
