Jiqun Liu, Ph.D. 刘济群

I am an Assistant Professor of Data Science at SLIS, the University of Oklahoma.

My research focuses on the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI), interactive information seeking/retrieval, and computational economics, and seeks to apply the knowledge learned from people interacting with information in search recommendation, user education and intelligent nudging.

My recent studies/projects include: 1) Behavioral Economics + Information Retrieval + Machine Learning: investigating the impacts of users' systematic cognitive biases on their search decision-making and evaluations of information seeking/search episodes; 2) State-aware Task Support System: identifying the states of complex tasks that contextualize human-information interaction and applying the knowledge about states in developing and evaluating adaptive system recommendations.

I received my PhD in Information Science from School of Communication and Information, Rutgers University. I hold an M.S. in Information Science from Peking University (2016), and double B.A. in Library Science and Finance from Nankai University (2014). My recent CV is available here.

** Announcement:

I am looking for self-motivated students to work with me. Research opportunities are available at both undergraduate and graduate levels. If you are interested in working with me, feel free to email me with your CV and a brief description of your previous research experiences & current research interests.
