Research Activities


My research activities are related to Adaptive Information Access & Retrieval.
Three main axis could be highlighted:
  • Studies on user activities related to information: i.e. annotations, social information-based activities, Web 2.0...,
  • User, task and context modelling for information access and retrieval,
  • Interfaces for information retrieval systems.

We investigate a new domain in which our work can be applied and developped: ambiant systems via the IRIT strategic research axis "SSTA" ( Socio-Technical Ambiant Systems).
Our results have been integrated in information access and retrieval systems (search engines, recommender systems...) that correspond to fully functionnal prototypes (Easy-DOR, SiSSI, Taffanote?).

In order to improve our results, we are working with experts from peripheral topics like cognitive science for user modelling.
