Assistant Professor of Computer Science, University of Chicago

In January 2017, I joined the University of Chicago and established the UChicago Security, Usability, & Privacy Education & Research group (the SUPERgroup).

I research computer security, privacy, and human-computer interaction (HCI). I am especially interested in using data-driven methods to help users make better security and privacy decisions, as well as to greatly improve the usability of complex computer systems for non-technical users. My dissertation focused on supporting users' password-security decisions with data. I have also worked extensively on supporting users' online privacy and on the Internet of Things (IoT). I received my PhD in 2016 from Carnegie Mellon University, where I was advised by Lorrie Cranor.
