Falk Scholer

I'm a Professor of Information Retrieval in the discipline of Computer Science & IT, in the School of Science at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, and Deputy Director of the RMIT Centre for Information Discovery and Data Analytics (CIDDA).

My research is in the area of information retrieval, focusing on understanding how search systems can assist users to resolve their information needs, and how the performance of this can be measured.

I teach a range of courses, including on web development and programming, data science, databases, and information retrieval.

I'm also active in the area of human research ethics, and am the Chair of the Science, Engineering and Health College Human Ethics Advisory Network (CHEAN), and a member of the RMIT Human Research Ethics Committee.
