Research approved

I’m currently studying a Masters degree in Internet Communication – almost finished my second of three years. It’s a bit of a strange course and next year involves two subjects that I’m really not interested in, so instead I asked if I can do a research project.

How cool – I can, and the head of school thought my topic would be good. So next year, I’m going to be spending lots of time trawling through user-centred design, human factors, cognitive psych and LIS literature (only the first of which is *my* field) looking for techniques & theories that we may use to better arrange large, heterogeneous information spaces so they are more usable. If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll know that this is something I’ve been musing on recently.

Yay! I’ll let you know how it goes (slowly, I imagine)
