Personal profile

Academic Qualifications

I have a PhD in cognitive science, where I studied structure (genre) in texts, in particular looking at how people skim, read, and extract relevant information from emails and web pages. I have experience in both software development for information retrieval and seeking, and in experimental research on human information use using eyetracking technology.

I also have research outputs and interests in Artificial Intelligence, in particular, Machine Learning, and also domain knowledge modelling/data analytics. 

Outside interests include research into helping people communicate more effectively by using psychometrics to measure empathy in their emails with Turalt (Toronto: Canada)
