I am a Senior Researcher in the Context, Learning, and User Experience for Search (CLUES) group at Microsoft Research . I completed my Ph.D. in the Computer Science Department at CMU under Jaime Carbonell and John Lafferty. When I was at CMU, I used to help organize the Information Retrieval Discussion Series.

A fairly current list of my publications is available on my Microsoft Research Homepage. A less frequently updated listing is kept at CMU. I am also engaged in a variety of professional service activies. My CV is available upon request.

The RADAR Action-Item Dataset is available here.

At the request of several researchers in the field, I put together a small package for Recalibrating Classifiers in 2004-2005. It is provided AS-IS and with NO WARRANTY and is available here.
