Research interests

  • Information retrieval: tools to support people in finding information to meet their need.
  • Information Organization: show the patterns and structure of information.
  • Information Visualization: design and develop new ways to visually interact with information.
  • Human-Computer Interaction: test information retrieval tools with real users.

Selected research activities

2013-2016

FQRSC New Researcher Grant
A Novel Library Collection Browsing and Information Retrieval Tool
Project aims to develop and test a novel online library catalogue that offers searchers an interactive visualization of the subjects offered by the collection in addition to the traditional search box. (Principal Investigator)

2013

McGill Internal SSHRC Grant
Social Network Visualization to Facilitate Subject Browsing in Library Collections
Exploratory study aims to establish if social network visualizations can be usable and useful to facilitate subject browsing in library collections. (Principal Investigator)

2011

Post-Doctoral Fellow
