Human information interaction

Having the right information at the right time is key to autonomy, decision making, and modern democracy.

Increasingly, though, we get our information from technological sources—search, online news, even social media. Our group is interested in the nexus of humans, technology and information: how do people find, use and manage information, and how is this affected (positively or negatively) by technology? Our key interests are information seeking beyond search, information neutrality and mis- and disinformation, social information seeking, and the role of information in creative and innovative problem solving.
