Our research investigates recommender systems and other personalized systems, especially as these systems are deployed in complex and socially-sensitive settings, such as philanthropy, news, and employment. Our current project center on multistakeholder recommendation, and in particular, fairness-aware recommendation.
We invite applications for funded PhD positions in the area of recommender systems fairness, including both computational and qualitative/HCI approaches. Applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in computing are encouraged to apply. You may apply either to the Department of Information Science or the Department of Computer Science.
