Dr. Storey’s research interests involve understanding how people solve complex tasks, and designing technologies to facilitate navigating and understanding large information spaces. Her research group is working on a variety of projects within the areas of software engineering, human-computer interaction, information visualization, social informatics, and knowledge management. Their goals are to improve tools that support software developers, knowledge engineers, and student programmers. Specifics about Dr. Storey’s research projects can be found her research group’s web site.
