International Visiting Research Fellowship awarded to Dr. Julie Jupp13 February 2008, posted by jrj27
Julie will be undertaking a short term Visiting Research Fellowship to establish new research on ‘Detecting Preference and Choice under Risk and Uncertainty in Natural Language Text’, at the University of Sydney, Australia, 2008.
About the Fellowship: Julie is utilising her annual leave to take advantage of a research opportunity awarded to her by the Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition. Julie will undertake new research on decision-making in design with Dr. Andy Dong. Julie’s project developed out of her current research agenda with the KIM project on comparisons of decision processes across the aerospace and construction sectors. The Fellowship project seeks to undertake research on the detection of preference and choice by analysing designers’ natural language text. This research is of central importance in understanding expressions of preference and choice by designers throughout design stages and therefore under varying levels of risk and uncertainty. This will advance our knowledge of the subjective aspects of sequential and distributed decision-making and move towards the development of decision detection methods.
