Craig's Thesis Available

Following up from my successful defence, I'm pleased to announce that my thesis, titled The Voting Model for People Search is now available online.

My thesis proposes the Voting Model for various people search problems, such as expert search in enterprise settings (find me someone who knows about...) , or blog(ger) search (find me a blog about the general topic...). I also examine the reviewer assignment problem (suggest for me reviewers for this paper...). In general, the Voting Model is concerned with the ranking of aggregates of documents.

Experimental chapters are mainly carried out using TREC Enterprise track and Blog track test collections.
