Pamela Wisniewski, assistant professor of computer science at the UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science, was named a Senior Member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

ACM Senior Membership is an honor bestowed on those who have demonstrated technical leadership and have made significant technical or professional contributions to the field of computing. Senior Members must have at least 10 years of professional experience and 5 years of continuous membership in the ACM.

Wisniewski’s user-centered research examines the complex interactions between technology and people and how they affect human behavior and society. Her research on adolescent online safety has won the prestigious NSF CAREER Award, best paper awards, and best paper honorable mentions at premier conferences, as well as being featured in Science Daily, Forbes, and NPR. She has been a faculty member at UCF since Fall 2015.

“I am deeply honored to be selected as an ACM Senior Member,” Wisniewski says. “As an active member of the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI), the ACM Future Computing Academy (FCA), and the inaugural chair of the ACM-W Rising Star Award Committee, I am committed to serving the ACM community, which has also greatly supported my success in academia.”

Wisniewski received her Ph.D. in Computing and Information Systems from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She earned both her master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Decision and Information Sciences from the University of Florida.
