My research focuses on information retrieval, digital libraries, social informatics, and scholarly communication using text mining, natural language processing, and machine learning techniques. I have worked extensively with textual data. My work combines qualitative and quantitative methods, including focus groups, survey and field experiments, and computational approaches.

In addition to publishing scholarly articles, I have authored a book on Text Mining for Information Professionals.
