Research interests

Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval


My research is concerned with people’s interactions with information retrieval systems, such as modern search engines. At a theoretical level, my research focuses on the theories of human concept formation and their implications for information access. At the applied level, I am interested in the design and evaluation of information retrieval systems. My recent research projects study the impact of individual differences on search behaviour, and the user’s gazing behaviour interacting with search user interfaces.
