ABOUT ME

 

How to pronounce Jacek Gwizdka?  How to pronounce my names? Jacek: WAV MP3 Gwizdka: WAV MP3

 

I study human information interaction and retrieval and apply cognitive psychology and neuro-physiological methods to understand information searchers and improve search experience. I am particularly interested in creating models that describe and predict cognitive and affective phenomena in human information interaction. My recent projects investigate search as a learning process and employ eye-tracking in assessment of reading, mind-wandering and in inferring information relevance.
