Presented my work at iConference 2016

I have worked on projects that aim to explore the online search behaviors of Arab users with the goal of informing global technology design and policy. This work is a Google funded research project to explore the search behavior and challenges of non-native speakers of English when searching in the English language. The preliminary findings suggest a strong disparity exists between the language distribution of Web content and the representation of speakers of different languages among Web users. In particular, I examined the search behaviors of Arab speakers when searching online in English and measure the differences when searching in Arabic vs. in English. The results of this research were presented at iConference  2016 and the paper can be found (here).
