Research

Professor Eastman's research interests focus on effective and efficient algorithms for information retrieval. When you want information, how easily and quickly can you find it? Is it useful and correct when you do find it? Her work in this area has addressed a broad spectrum of problems, from efficient file organizations to search interfaces and user interactions. She has also been working with colleagues on problems in database security. She is PI and co-director (with Professor Bowles) for an NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates site.
