Personal statement

I am a Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS). My research interests are in information retrieval (IR), human computer interaction (HCI) and multimodal interaction. 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.
