Research Interests:

I am an active researcher.  My overall goal is to help people find and use information more effectively.  I believe this goal can best be achieved through interdisciplinary and collaborative research.  Much of my research is conducted under the mantle of the HAIKU research group.
My major research areas are:

  • Human-Computer Interaction
