Yahoo! award

I’m happy to announce that I have received the Yahoo! Campus Innovation Award in the amount of $20,000 for my project titled “Reimagining and Reinvigorating Information Seeking with a Novel Approach to Collaborative Information Seeking (CIS).”

This is a one-year project that seeks to understand motivations and methods for people working in collaboration for information seeking tasks, gather design specifications for a user-driven CIS system, as well as implement and evaluate a flexible and scalable integrated collaborative environment. The project is intended to investigate social and collaborative aspects of information seeking as an overarching goal of this research.

Thank you, Yahoo!
