I am a third year 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 users, especially understudied populations, use or misuse security tools to design better and more inclusive solutions. More broadly, I am interested in human-computer interaction as well as multi-disciplinary research.
