Faculty member & Research Group Leader, Max Planck Institute for Software Systems

I am a Faculty Member & Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems. My research interests are broadly in the areas of security and privacy. I use computational, economic, and social science methods to understand users’ security and privacy decision-making processes, specifically investigating inequalities that arise in these processes and mitigating those inequalities through the design of systems that facilitate safety equitably across users.
