To this name I might add Sue Dumais's
(http://research.microsoft.com/~sdumais/). She's also at MSR: "I am
interested in algorithms and interfaces for improved information
retrieval, as well as general issues in and human-computer
interaction. I joined Microsoft Research in July 1997. I work on a
wide variety of information access and management issues, including:
personal information management, web search, question answering,
information retrieval, text categorization, collaborative filtering,
interfaces for improved search and navigation, and user/task
modeling." I've seen her speak once and she's good.
