Mark S. Ackerman is the George Herbert Mead Collegiate Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Michigan. He is a Professor in the School of Information and in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as well as the Department of Learning Health Sciences. Mark’s major research area is Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), primarily social computing and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). Mark has published widely, including about expertise sharing (especially for chronic conditions), collaborative information access, pervasive environments for health, and the development of clinical programs for chronic care. His work spans both technical and social analytic studies. For his work on socio-technical systems, Mark was elected as a member of the CHI Academy and as an ACM Fellow. Mark has degrees from the University of Chicago, Ohio State University, and MIT.
Note: In Computer Science and adjacent areas, conference articles are highly refereed (except where marked below) and are considered archival (journal-equivalent) publications. Also, authorship order is different than in Medicine.
