I am a PhD candidate at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the Department of Computer Science, where I am being advised by Chris Kanich. I also closely collaborate with Blase Ur and Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez.
My research interests span the domain of security and privacy on the Internet. I focus on understanding online privacy, socio-technical aspects of cybercrime, and human factors in security. I am also interested in usable security, cybercrime economics, and Internet censorship. A lot of my work incorporates insights from empirical analysis to suggest primitives in order to improve the security, reliability and the performance of the Internet.
