Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS). My research interests are in interactive information retrieval, multimodal interaction and human computer interaction (HCI). I am particularly interested in novel uses of multimodal technology to facilitate appropriate search and interaction with information. I currently teach modules on information retrieval, big data and business analysis to students across all of the faculties in the university. Within CIS I am the Course Director for the MSc in Information Management and the Deputy Director of Research. I am also the one of the theme leaders for the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) HCI theme.
