My interests are in the human aspects of computer security and privacy. Past areas of work include security for implantable medical devices, privacy issues surrounding augmented reality glasses, and security awareness and education. I completed my PhD at the University of Washington working with Tadayoshi Kohno in the Security and Privacy Research Lab.
