Biography

Research theme: Information

Research discipline: Information Systems

Research areas

Information retrieval: models of information retrieval (e.g., probabilistic retrieval), semantic search (e.g., for medical information retrieval), user models, use of semantic space models to enhance information access

Cognitve science: The use of quantum theory to model cognitive systems, e.g., conceptual representation, human memory, human decision making under uncertainty (e.g., judgements of the relevance of information)

Applied logic: abductive reasoning, human reasoning, practical logics of cognitive sytems
