Summertime can mean many things in the world of academia, and this season found our director, Dr. Chirag Shah, taking his work on an international tour. After being named a Rutgers New Brunswick Chancellor’s Scholar, receiving an NIH grant for over $1.4 million, and publishing a new book on Social Information Seeking, Dr. Shah’s 2017 has already been a great success. Check out where he’s been recently to present research!
First up, Dr. Shah served as a Visiting Professor at the National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Tokyo, where he presented a talk on “Information Fostering.”
Next, he went to Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, South Korea, and gave a talk on “Social Information Seeking.”
From there, Dr. Shah taught about “Social and Collaborative Search” at the Asian Summer School on Information Access, 2017.
FINALLY, and currently, Dr. Shah has come full circle by attending the annual SIGIR conference back in Tokyo.
We’re certainly proud of our director and thrilled that work pursued by the InfoSeeking Lab is making a global impact.
