Congratulations to Dr. Thomas E. Pinelli…

Congratulations to Dr. Thomas E. Pinelli on becoming Fellow for the WDC chapter this year. It is quite an honor to receive this distinction. We are proud that Thom is a member of our organization and the chapter. Thom was elected an Associate Fellow in 1999. A senior member of the Washington, DC Chapter, he has distinguished himself in the areas of usability, scientific communication, management, user needs, product development, quality/process improvement, and research. He is also a senior member of several organizations and societies and he has received numerous honors for his research and study of the technical communications practices of engineers and scientists.

In 2002, he received an Emmy Award® for his work in producing children’s educational television. He served as the Associate Editor for Research of Technical Communication for almost a decade; has been a manager at the NASA Langley Research Center for more than 30 years; and has authored and co-authored more than 300 journal articles, technical reports, conference and meeting papers, newsletter articles, and book reviews.

The citation on his plaque reads:

For advancement of best practices in technical communication through independent research, creative vision, convergence of communication disciplines, and charting of new territory across visual and multimedia production modes.
