Introduction

My research focuses on the design and evaluation of information access systems, including information retrieval (e.g. web search) and recommendation systems. This has included developing evaluation metrics, designing algorithms, and understanding the broader, societal implications of these technologies.

Detailed information can be found on my curriculum vitae.
