One of the keys to a successful Master's Program is to reach agreement with your research advisor on an achievable research program and then develop a plan that permits you to achieve that research goal within a given time frame. If you decide that I would be a suitable research advisor for you based on research interests, we will work together to develop a course of studies and research program that will accomplish your goals and be achievable within your timeframe.

Helpful Information Technology for Normal People: If your interest is system design -- including information usage, human computer interaction, or system design -- this is an exciting Masters research project. We are designing and developing information systems that personalize themselves to individual users. We are developing a Web information system that adapts itself based on the specific interactions of an individual, with the aim of improving the effectiveness of the user's search. We are currently in Release 2 of the system, so we are now at the really cutting edge of personalization research. A great time to get involved with the project. Requires some programming, so a working to competent knowledge of JavaScript, Visual Basic, and ASP is needed. However, other research directions for this project are available that do not require programming.
