Reader in Data Science at the University of Wolverhampton. Interested in all things Information Retrieval.

Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
