Collaborative and Social Web Search

My research on collaborative search is aimed at facilitating small-group collaboration on search tasks. Collaborative search is one example of social search, wherein users employ social resources to further an information need. More recently, I have begun to explore other aspects of social search, particularly the ways in which question-asking on social networks can complement the use of search engines.
