iSchool Student Research

Each year, the School hosts a poster session, showcasing the work of our doctoral and Master's students. This year, the first poster session was held on October 31, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the iSchool Board of Visitors. Seventeen posters were featured covering a range of topics, from wireless VoIP Prototype to multi-robot control to archaeological recordkeeping in the United States. Click here to explore a few of the fascinating research projects undertaken by our students:

  • Walk the Talk: Analyzing the Relation between Implicit and Explicit Feedback for Preference Elicitation
  • Mt. Lebanon Village Oral History Repository
  • Sculpting that 'WoW' Body: Constructing Gender Identity in World of Warcraft
  • Synchronous vs. Asynchronous Control in Multi-Robot Search
  • MEMA: using tags, posts, and tweets to help users build a personal narrative of the Teeny Harris Exhibition
