About

I'm an Associate Professor of Information Science and an affiliate member of Computer Science at Rutgers University. My research interests include studies of interactive information retrieval/seeking, especially those involving social and collaborative aspects. I study social media and data generated by wearable devices as kinds of signals that can help us understand and impact human behaviors. Much of my work falls at the intersections of information seeking and social media. I am also interested in various theoretical and practical aspects of information as a dynamic construct. I received my PhD in Information Science from UNC Chapel Hill. I hold an MTech, Computer Science & Engineering from IIT Madras, India and an MS, Computer Science from UMass Amherst. I have published and talked extensively on topics related to social and collaborative information seeking, including a book published by Springer.
