Currently doing a PhD in Collaborative Sensemaking at the University of Birmingham.
My Focus at the moment is on aiding collaborative sensemaking activities using suggester systems and narrative visualisation.
My first academic work entitled "supporting transactive memory systems through information brokering" was a paper proposing the concepts and techniques involved in a system that could manage a transactive memory system through the potential social connections dependant on the content of posts that are exchanged between people in a network. The proposed system could also identify the potential of a node to fulfil a certain role within the system. This has serious application for emergency responders.
