My focus is in information retrieval research. My current interests are user modeling, personalization, and privacy within search. Several of my projects have involved user studies and writing browser extensions (Firefox and Chrome) as well as server-side systems (PHP and Java web apps with database support). I perform most of my query log mining tasks in TupleFlow, a MapReduce-like framework that comes bundled with the Galago research retrieval system. 擅长领域:Search logging, query log mining, TupleFlow (a MapReduce-like framework), prototype systems, browser extensions Education University of Massachusetts, Amherst Computer Science, PhD 2007 – 2013 University of Massachusetts, Amherst University of Massachusetts, Amherst Computer Science, MS 2007 – 2009 Loyola College in Maryland Loyola College in Maryland Computer Science, BS 2003 – 2007 Experience Assistant Professor of Computer Science Endicott College 2013 年 8 月 – 至今 (2 年 9 个月)Beverly, MA Graduate Research Assistant University of Massachusetts Amherst 2007 年 9 月 – 2013 年 7 月 (5 年 11 个月)Amherst, MA Some of the projects I have been involved with include passage retrieval, medical query log mining, large scale data mining with TupleFlow, frustration detection in web search, privacy in web search, search task segmentation, and book retrieval.
