Wendy A. Kellogg was a Research Staff Member and founder of the Social Computing Group at IBM's T. J. Watson Research Center. Her work involves designing and studying systems for supporting computer-mediated communication (CMC) in groups and organizations. Wendy's work in human-computer interaction (HCI) over the last two decades has spanned areas including theory, evaluation methods, design, and development. She has a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Oregon where she held an NSF Predoctoral Fellowship and had the honor of working with Dr. Michael Posner, a student of Paul Fitts. Wendy is author of papers in the fields of HCI and CSCW and Associate Editor of ACM's Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction. She served as the Technical Program Co-Chair for CHI 2011, as Doctoral Consortium Co-Chair for CHI 2010, and as the inaugural Interaction Beyond the Individual Subcommittee Chair for CHI 2009, the Technical Papers Co-Chair for CHI 2005, as Technical Program Co-Chair for ACM's DIS 2000 ("Designing Interactive Systems") conference, and as General Co-Chair for ACM's CSCW 2000 ("Computer-Supported Cooperative Work") and ACM's CHI 1994 ("Human Factors in Computing Systems") conferences. Wendy is a former member of the National Academies of Science Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, is an ACM Fellow, and a member of the CHI Academy and the IBM Academy.
Wendy founded the Social Computing Group at IBM Research in 1998. The team worked in the areas of computer-mediated communication, human-computer interaction, computer supported cooperative work. In its 14 years the team received significant recognition including several nominations and two Best Paper awards from ACM SIGCHI's CHI and CSCW conferences, two ACM Fellows, and a member of the CHI and IBM Academies. The team was also recognized with Outstanding Innovation awards from IBM in 2005 and 2011 and for its work on Social Computing, and generated more than 150 publications and three dozen patents.
