Dr. Leif Azzopardi is a Lecturer within the Glasgow Information Retrieval Group and a full time academic member of staff within the School of Computing Science, at the University of Glasgow. He currently supervises several PhD, MSc and Honours Students on projects ranging from traditional formal models based research and applications of Information Retrieval to extreme models, methods and applications (such as those based on Quantum Theory or Transportation Planning). His latest research focus on using Microeconomic Theory to model the interaction between users and information retrieval systems.
Central to his research is the theoretical development of statistical language models for Information Retrieval, where his research interests include:
Try out our latest Search Game for Children and Adults
See more demos of some of the Information Retrieval applications I have been working on.
Most of the demonstrators above have been created using the Open Source PuppyIR Framework for developing Interactive Information Retrieval Services for Children (and Adults) that I have been working on.
