The schedule of our BCS-IRSG Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access (FDIA 2018) is online.

Our IJDL Focused Issue on Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing for Digital Libraries is out now.

About me

University of Bedfordshire I am Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Technology of the University of Bedfordshire (UoB) in Luton, UK. I am working in the areas of Information Retrieval and Digital Libraries.

Quartz ITN I am UoB's Principal Investigator of the EU H2020 Innovative Training Network QUARTZ (Quantum Information Access and Retrieval Theory), which is concerned with formal approaches to Information Access and Retrieval based on the quantum mechanical framework.

Prior to this, I was a member of the Information Retrieval group at the School of Computing Science of the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Glasgow. Before I was working in the Information Systems Working Group at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Duisburg-Essen, where I did my PhD on information modelling and retrieval based on user annotations. Before joining the group in Duisburg, I worked at Fraunhofer IPSI on annotation-based retrieval in Digital Humanities.

I hold a PhD from the University of Duisburg-Essen and Diploma (MSc equivalent) in Computer Science from the University of Dortmund. I am a BCS Fellow as well as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Research Interests

My main research interests are Information Retrieval, Information Systems and Digital Libraries. Please contact me if you are interested in a BSc, MSc or PhD project in these areas. In particular, I have been working on the following topics:

I gave a tutorial about quantum probabilities and quantum-inspired IR at the Autumn School of the German IR Specialist Group.
