Phone: +1 (412) 624 9404
On my teaching page you can find some information about my office hours, courses that I am teaching and local seminars that I recommend to my PhD and MS students, and independent studies you can take with me.
A note to the past students of my courses: I keep Web sites of the past courses intact so that you can use it as a reference even after you graduated. However, due to the lack of space, I only keep lecture notes for a few most recent offerings of the same course. If the lecture notes of your course is not online anymore, please, use the notes of the most recent one.
704 Information Science Building, (135 North Bellefield Avenue)
To find relevant reserch seminars, I recommend to use CoMeT system, which lists many talks at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University allowing you to bookmark, tag, and share interesting talks with friends.
The most interesting seminar series that I recommend to my graduate students to watch are:
I am happy to to supervise and co-supervise independent studies, thesis, and other students projects that are relevant to two major direction of my research the adaptive Web and tools for teaching Information Science topis (see DIST Teaching and Learning Research Lab). The first direction includes a broad range of topics on Web personalization and adaptive Web-based systems in the fields of education, information access, medicine, and e-commerce. If you are interested to take an independent study or a project, please, send me an e-mail and stop by for a talk. A few reports of recent projects can be found below.
I am happy to provide job/graduate school references to the past students of my courses. However, to get a positive reference and you should earned at least A on my course and be among the top 10% (for graduate school reference) or top 20% (for a job reference) of students in class. I am also happy to provide references to all students who were involved in research projects and independent studies with me, assuming that you did a good work.
