My research focuses on human-centered computer security. I'm interested in understanding and influencing security and privacy behaviors and preferences by collecting real data from real users. Recently I have focused on topics including making security easier for professionals such as sysadmins and software developers, understanding how and why end users learn and apply security behaviors, and investigating adoption of end-to-end encrypted messaging.I lead the Security, Privacy, People lab (SP2) within the Maryland Cybersecurity Center.
I have limited openings for talented, motivated students who are excited about interdisciplinary research in HCI and security. If this sounds like you, whether you are already at Maryland or considering applying, please get in touch.
I am pleased to work with some excellent graduate students, including:
- Wei Bai (ECE PhD)
- Kelsey Fulton (CS PhD)
- Elissa Redmiles (CS PhD)
- Rock Stevens (CS PhD)
- Daniel Votipka (CS PhD)
