I am a third-year Computer Science PhD student in the Usable Security and Privacy Lab at the George Washington University advised by Prof. Adam J. Aviv. My research focuses on human factors in security; I investigate how end-users, especially understudied populations, interact with, use or misuse security tools to design more usable and secure solutions. More broadly, I am interested in human-computer interaction as well as multi-disciplinary research.
