The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has named a new roster of Distinguished Members. As noted by ACM President Vicki L. Hanson, the innovations that improve our lives do not come about by accident but rather are the result of the hard work, inspiration, and creativity of leading professionals in the field. ACM honors its Distinguished Members for the essential role that their accomplishments play in these innovations. The Yale Computer Science Department is delighted to announce that Rutgers Professor Rebecca N. Wright, who received her PhD from our department in 1994, is one of the 2017 class of ACM Distinguished Members.
