I am a Principal Data Scientist at LinkedIn. I’ve also worked at Google on local search quality, and I was a founding employee of faceted search pioneer Endeca, where I spent ten years as Chief Scientist.

I am a leading industry advocate of human-computer information retrieval (HCIR). I established the HCIR workshop, which has taken place annually since 2007. More generally, I’ve worked to bring together researchers and practitioners in this area, organizing academic and industry events related to search and social media. I wrote the first book on faceted search as part of the Morgan & Claypool Synthesis Lectures.

I hold degrees in math and computer science from MIT and a PhD in computer science from CMU, where I worked on network visualization. I blog at The Noisy Channel.
