Emma Barker 

I am a Research Fellow in the Natural Language Processing research group in the Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield.


Research Interests

My research focuses on: understanding people's situated information needs and how new natural language technologies can be developed to help people better meet these needs (i.e. requirements analysis, use case specification and technology evaluation).

Key methods include: text analysis; corpus development and annotation; interface design; qualitative techniques (interviews, focus groups, questionnaires).

Technologies investigated include: summarization, dialogue, translation.

Recently my interests are in interactive information access and in developing tools and resources to help public decision-making processes.
