Computer science professor Carl Gutwin was recently selected as a Distinguished Scientist by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world's largest educational and scientific computing society. 

The award celebrates the exceptional contributions of leading members in the computing fields. Gutwin was one of only three Canadians to make the list this year.

In addition to teaching in the department, Gutwin is also the director of the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) laboratory, which studies and innovates the way in which humans and computers interact. With computing technology now permeating everyday life, the group's diverse interests range from physical interactions—such as creating novel gestural and tangible interfaces, to emotional interactions—such as studying the effects that personal traits have on how people interact with technology.
