Peter Brusilovsky, Associate Professor, has been honored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) as a “Senior Member.”  The Senior Member Grade recognizes those ACM members with at least 10 years of professional experience and 5 years of continuous Professional Membership who have demonstrated performance that sets them apart from their peers.  For 2008, there were 162 scholars from universities, research institutions, and corporations who were similarly honored.  ACM is the largest educational and scientific computing society for the world's computing educators, researchers and professionals.  It is the Association’s mission to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field's challenges.

Brusilovsky is known for his research in the areas of Adaptive Web-based Systems, Adaptive Hypermedia, Adaptive Interfaces, Intelligent Tutoring Systems and Shells, Student and User Modelling, Human-Computer Interaction, and Artificial Intelligence.  In 2005, he won the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for his work on “Personalized Access to Open Corpus Educational Resources through Adaptive Navigation Support and Adaptive Visualization.”  He also serves as Associate Editor of the recently-introduced IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies.
