On the 18th of April, 2018, Hugo Huurdeman will defend his PhD thesis, entitled “Supporting the Complex Dynamics of the Information Seeking Process.”
The thesis was inspired by a paradox: online search engines currently offer a streamlined set of functionality, yet they are used in increasingly complex tasks. The thesis’ focus is on research-based tasks conducted via web archives and online search engines. Through literature reviews, user studies and information retrieval experiments, Hugo’s thesis aims to rethink the currently dominating search approach, and ultimately arrive at more dynamic support approaches for complex search tasks.
