Research title: Fair Machine Learning for Search and Recommendation Systems
I am a PhD student at the School of Computing Science where I am part of the Information Retrieval Group. My supervisors are Professor Iadh Ounis and Dr. Graham McDonald. My research focuses on fair Machine Learning. I develop fair ranking strategies for search and recommendation systems with machine learning techniques such as reinforcement learning. I evaluate existing and self-developed strategies and techniques to ensure a suitable trade-off between user satisfaction and fairness.
