Why QCRI? A question I asked myself when first invited to visit. My career path has been one of trying out new things, taking a direction very different from the one before, experiencing the new – cultures, challenges, opportunities. I was looking for the ‘next big thing’ to try. Once I visited here, the question became ‘Why not QCRI?’ And, when I was offered the opportunity to head Social Computing, my reaction was ‘Wow, QCRI!’
For many people, it is difficult to imagine conducting the daily business of life without the assistance of the Web and Internet. My research interest is in making this interaction among people, technology, and information even better through applied research. QCRI is the place to do this type of research!
QCRI is an energetic research lab providing a great opportunity for starting a new line of research. Also, Doha is a city full of adventurers.
