Jonathan Grudin

My research centers on human-computer interaction and computer-supported cooperative work. My principal focus now is on the introduction and use of groupware applications, with support from the National Science Foundation. As computer technologies are finally affecting the daily lives of substantial numbers of people, the indirect influences on society are irresistably interesting. Having worked as a developer for several years, I am also interested in historical, organizational, linguistic, and cultural influences that shape the way that human-computer dialogues are designed and developed. If you share some of these interests, I'd like to hear from you.

I recently became Editor In Chief of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction. With Steven Poltrock of Boeing, I am co-chairing the CSCW'98 Conference,which will be held in Seattle in November, 1998.
