Usable Security and Privacy
- User Authentication
- Smart Home and IoT
- Privacy Controls
Since October 2019, I have been a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy in Bochum, Germany. My personal website can be found here.
The research of our group at MPI-SP focuses on computer security, privacy, and human-computer interaction (HCI). We are especially working on methods to help users make better security and privacy decisions, as well as, to make complex computer systems more usable for non-technical users.
My dissertation focused on exploring the usability and security of password-based user authentication. I received my PhD in 2019 from Ruhr University Bochum, where I was advised by Markus Dürmuth.
