My main research interest is in Information Retrieval, in particular new ways to optimize and evaluate the utility of IR systems beyond the traditional independent assessments of relevance, and ideally with minimal human input.
I am also interested in experimental design, statistical methods, and scientific methodology as applied to computer science in general as well as information retrieval specifically.
