I am a fourth year PhD student in the Usable Security and Privacy Lab at the George Washington University where I am incredibly lucky to be advised by Adam Aviv.
My research focuses on human factors in security and privacy.
I investigate how users, especially understudied groups, interact with, use, and/or misuse security and privacy tools, then design more usable and secure solutions.
I received my Masters from Carnegie Mellon University and Bachelors from Strathmore University.
