Dr. Albertson studies and writes in the general area of interactive information retrieval (IIR). IIR intersects multiple areas of research, including information interaction, human-centered computing, and information management and design. Scholarly outputs of Dr. Albertson have pertained to visual - and more specifically - video information retrieval. Albertson steadily develops new projects and ideas based on current trends in information science and regularly conducts new studies from the perspective of visual information. His current research projects include investigating: 1) the intersection and associations between information seeking and curated educational video collections, 2) the psychological experiences of users facing video IIR situations, 3) the influences surrounding representations of social video, and 4) information use and selection models. Current and previous work can be found in some of the top journals in the field, including the Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIS&T), Journal of Documentation, Information Research, and Journal of Information Science, and notable conference proceedings, such as the ACM/IEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL), Information Interaction in Context (IIiX), ASIS&T, iConference, and many others.
