Personal statement

I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS). My research interests are in multimodel interaction, interactive information retrieval 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, machine learning, 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 Postgraduate Teaching Director. I am also the one of the theme leaders for the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) HCI theme and the Vice Chaire of the ACM SIGIR CHIIR Steering Committee.
