Research and Academia

My PhD research explores how user experience (UX) principles can inform the design of security and privacy in the smart home. My research is multidisciplinary; it spans computer security, privacy and human factors. I open to collaboration with academics and experts that are working in in the field of usable security, experience-centered security or any related topics. I am also seeking research internships in the area of usable security of web browsers and applications (e.g., see Thompson et. al). Venues that are very interesting to me are: CHI, SOUPS, CSCW, USENIX, ACM CCS and IEEE S&P. Please send me an email if you want to collaborate on an interesting research idea or project.
