Dr Falk Scholer is a research and teaching academic in the School of Computer Science and IT.
His research is in the domain of information retrieval, the study of storing, analysing and retrieving information. Information retrieval has many applications, the best known of which are probably web search engines such as Google and Bing.
Particular issues that Dr Scholer's research focuses on include:
- evaluation of information retrieval systems
- relevance and user perceptions
- document summarisation
- interactive search and user modelling
- web and enterprise search engines.
