Research Interests

Fuelled by the popularity and uptake of the World Wide Web since the 1990s, many researchers and commercial vendors have focussed on Adaptive Hypermedia Systems as an effective mechanism for disseminating personalised information and services. Such systems store information about the user, such as their goals, interests and background, and use this to provide a personalised response to the user. This technology has been applied to a number of contexts such as educational systems, e-commerce applications, information search and retrieval systems.


Marek completed his PhD in 2006. He has worked in parallel as a consultant.
