Jacek Gwizdka

Biography

Dr. Jacek Gwizdka conducts research in human-computer interaction with interests in information search processes and search interfaces, in application of cognitive psychology to interactive information retrieval, and in implicit assessment of cognitive load using psycho-physiological methods. His recent projects include application of cognitive neuroscience tools to the study of cognitive function engaged in human-information interaction as well as examination of effects of search results presentation and cognitive abilities on information search task performance. He serves in various roles at international conference and workshop organization committees (for example, IIiX, ASIS&T, ACM SIGCHI and SIGIR). He serves on editorial board of Interacting with Computers.
