Web Analytics Made Easy -

My research helps people find, access, understand, analyze, and use information from text corpora. I apply a combination of information retrieval, data/text mining, and HCI methods to study search/retrieval systems, conversational agents (e.g., chatbots), exploratory analytics, and other text-based information systems.

Dr. Jiepu Jiang is an Assistant Professor in the Information School, University of Wisconsin-Madison, which is a part of the newly founded School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences (CDIS). Before joining UW-Madison, he was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Tech CS Department from 2018 to 2020. His research interests lie at the intersection of information retrieval and human-computer interaction (HCI), especially studying human-AI interaction issues in text-based information systems. His research has received the best student paper award in CHIIR 2017 (the ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction & Retrieval). He holds bachelor's and master's degrees from Wuhan University, a Ph.D. in Library & Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh, and is finishing another Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
