I am head of the usable security and privacy research group. Broadly, I study the intersection of computer security and privacy with human factors. I'm particularly interested in investigating end users, administrators, developers and designers of computer systems and their interdependencies with computer security and privacy mechanisms. My research involves large-scale analyses of the Internet and software repositories to understand the huge challenges humans face when interacting with computer security and privacy mechanisms. To understand root causes, evaluate existing mechanisms and investigate novel ideas, I conduct all kinds of user studies with end users, administrators, and developers of these systems. If you are interested in my work, wish to collaborate with me, want to request a detailed CV or for whatever other reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.
