Tim Jones

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at RMIT university with Mark Sanderson and Falk Scholer. Our current research focusses on differences in retrieval over sub-collections.


Previously, I was a member of the R&D team at Funnelback Enterprise Search. Before that, I was a PhD student at The Australian National University, supervised by David HawkingRamesh Sankaranarayana and Nick Craswell.

My PhD thesis was titled “Ideal Spam Nullification: Understanding the impact of web spam”, and you can download the whole thesis here.

My research interests in information retrieval include effective evaluation, user studies, web spam and a variety of other topics. Outside information retrieval, I am also interested in recommender systems, effective software design and testing, and computer security.
