Bio

I am a Lecturer (equivalent to an Assistant Professor) in Human-Computer Interaction and Information Seeking, in the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham, UK. My research focuses on Search User Interface design, taking a multidisciplinary perspective from both Human-Computer Interaction (the presentation and interaction) and Information Science (the information and seeking behaviours). My doctoral work, which won best article in the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology in 2009, focused on evaluating Search User Interfaces using models of Human Information Seeking behaviours. I received my PhD from the University of Southampton, under the supervision of m.c. schraefel and Dame Wendy Hall. Consequently, much of my past work has been grounded in supporting Exploratory Search with the mSpace platform, and within the developing context of Web Science.

I publish broadly in Human-Computer Interaction and Information Science communities, including a book on Search User Interface Design, a monograph with co-authors schraefel, Kules, and Shneiderman on future Search User Interfaces for the web, and a book chapter on Search User Interface Design in a new IIR textbook. I also actively participate in both communities, running workshops and panels with community leaders. In conjunction with UXLabs, I am bringing european industry and academia together in the new series of euroHCIR workshops. With future conference chairs as panelists, I am fundamentally challenging the Human-Computer Interaction community's perspective on the replicability of research at his RepliCHI series. When at Swansea, I taught research methods for Human-Computer Interaction, and Human Computer Information Retrieval, and developed a new Web Science MSc program to stimulate cross disciplinary teaching and research.
