Browse and Search for Harvard Faculty with Harvard Faculty Finder (BETA)

About the Faculty Finder

The Harvard Faculty Finder (HFF) is a search and browse interface of Harvard faculty's research and teaching expertise.   

By indexing and linking public information about Harvard faculty, HFF lets users search across schools for faculty who study or teach a particular topic.

HFF is not a faculty profiles tool, nor is it an aggregate of comprehensive faculty information. It is a work-in-progress and will remain in beta until widely tested.

How the Faculty Finder Works

At the link, enter a name or a research topic into the Search bar. Results will show matching Harvard faculty, title, school, and website, along with a link to the Faculty Finder items that matched your keywords.

Data sources include faculty publications, courses taught, directory information, and various public websites.  Other systems can extract data with HFF's web service interface for use across the University.

HFF uses open source technologies developed at Harvard Medical School, including Harvard Catalyst Profiles, as well as publication data provided by Thomson Reuters. It was developed and approved under the auspices of the Harvard Academic Computing Committee.
