Hong Named 2022 ACM Fellow


Jason Hong

Professor Jason Hong from Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science has been recognized a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The distinction, reserved for the top 1% of the association's membership, honors recipients' outstanding work in computing and information technology and/or outstanding service to ACM and the larger computing community.

"Computing's most important advances are often the result of a collection of many individual contributions, which build upon and complement each other," ACM President Yannis Ioannidis said. "But each individual contribution is an essential link in the chain. The ACM Fellows program is a way to recognize the women and men whose hard work and creativity happens inconspicuously but drives our field. In selecting a new class of ACM fellows each year, we also hope that learning about these leaders might inspire our wider membership with insights for their own work."

Hong, a professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, earned the fellow distinction for his contributions to ubiquitous computing and usable privacy and security. His Computer Human Interaction: Mobility Privacy Security (CHIMPS) research group uses methods from human-computer interaction, machine learning, systems and social psychology to investigate problems in smartphone privacy, usable security, and AI bias and fairness. He authored "The Design of Sites," a popular book on web design using web design patterns, and co-founded Wombat Security Technologies, which was acquired by Proofpoint in March 2018. Hong has participated on DARPA's Computer Science Study Panel, is an Alfred P. Sloan Research fellow, a Kavli fellow, a PopTech Science fellow, a New America National Cybersecurity fellow, and a member of the CHI Academy. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and his undergraduate degrees from Georgia Institute of Technology.
