AMiner Scholar has named Assistant Professor Tawfiq Ammari the 2022 AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Honorable Mention in Human-Computer Interaction “for his outstanding and vibrant contributions to this field between 2012 and 2021.”
"The LIS Department is very proud of Dr. Ammari, whose growing national reputation in the field of Human-Computer Interaction is being recognized by his peers through this important honorable mention award," Chair of the Library and Information Science Department and Professor Marie Radford said.
According to AMiner, “The AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Annual List aims to name 2,000 of the world’s top research scholars from the fields of artificial intelligence over this decade (2020-2029). The list is conferred in recognition of outstanding technical achievements with lasting contribution and impact. Each year, the top 10 scholars from each domain will be named as ‘AI 2000 Most Influential Scholars’ and the top 11–100 scholars will be awarded as ‘AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Honorable Mention.’ The 2022 winners are among the most-impactful scholars from the top venues of their respective subject fields between 2012 and 2021.”
A mixed-methods researcher, Ammari connects critical theory values from Science, Technology, and Society studies (STS) with computational social science techniques to advocate for equity and progressive social change in online contexts.
Ammari's research lies at the intersection of Social Computing, Data Science, and STS. His work focuses on the interplay between technological and social role change. Specifically, he studies how large societal shifts, such as changing norms around masculinity, are associated with online interactions and social movements. He also researches how the mass adoption of technologies like social media and emerging technologies like voice assistants affects social roles in the domestic sphere.
Ammari earned his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2020.
