Shah, C., Hendahewa, H., & Gonzalez-Ibanez, R. (2016). Rain or shine? Forecasting search process performance in exploratory search tasks. Published in Journal of the Association for Information Science & Technology (JASIST).
In this work, we investigate individual searcher situation where our objective is to detect potential problems before they happen and provide appropriate recommendations to address those problems.

Gonzalez-Ibanez, R., Shah, C., & White, R. (2015). Capturing collabportunities: A method to evaluate collaboration opportunities in information search using pseudo-collaboration. Journal of the Association for Information Science & Technology (JASIST), 66(9), 1897-1912.
In this work, we look at how we could recommend a searcher to collaborate with someone as early as possible in their search process. The article has been accepted in JASIST, and should be available soon.

Soulier, L., Shah, C., & Tamine, L. (2014). User-Driven System-Mediated Collaborative Information Retrieval. Proceedings of ACM SIGIR 2014 Conference. Gold Coast, Australia: July 6-10, 2014.
In this work, we investigated how quickly with as little data as possible, we could figure out the roles that individuals play in a collaborative project, and use that information to enhance that collaboration.

Hendahewa, C. & Shah, C. (2013). Segmental Analysis and Evaluation of Exploratory Search Process. Proceedings of IEEE's 12th International Conference on Machine Learning and Applications (ICMLA). Miami, FL: December 4-7, 2013.
This is a first step toward using tinyDATA ideas for evaluation and predictions in exploratory search.
