Portrait of Adam Fourney

Adam Fourney

Principal Researcher


I am a computer scientist in the Information and Data Sciences group, at Microsoft Research in Redmond.

I study web search, and the role it plays in supporting people's tasks and interactions with other technologies. To this end, my research intersects the fields of HCI and IR, and I am equally at home when building systems, running user studies, or analyzing large query logs.

Before joining Microsoft, I studied at the University of Waterloo, where I earned my Master's and Doctorate degrees.
