Much of our recent work has focussed on the challenges involved in searching, navigating and sense-making within complex information spaces. This has three primary facets:
- Investigation of novel text analytics techniques for extracting structure and meaning from unstructured information sources
- Development of new interaction and visualisation techniques for exploring complex information spaces
- Empirical studies of human information-seeking behaviour, in particular the user experience of exploratory search and knowledge discovery applications.
We have ongoing research collaborations with a variety of organisations, including Sheffield University’s iSchool, City University’s Centre for Interactive Systems Research, Essex University’s Language and Computation Group, and Glasgow University’s Information Retrieval group.
We are always interested in research partnerships and working on collaborative projects. If you would like to discuss a potential project with us, please get in touch.
