Description

I'm an Information Retrieval researcher. Between 1998 and 2008 I was a research scientist at CSIRO. In July 2008 I took up a full-time position at the Funnelback enterprise search company in the role of Chief Scientist.

My interests lie in the areas of enterprise and Web Search. I am particularly interested in search evaluation in realistic contexts, distributed search techniques, enterprise/intranet search, improvement of search through exploitation of context, personal search and search efficiency. I am a member of the editorial board for the Information Retrieval journal (INRT).
