My research interests are broadly in the area of digital harm. I use computational, economic, and social science methods to understand users’ security, privacy, and online safety-related decision-making processes. Much of my work focuses specifically on investigating inequalities that arise in these decision-making processes and mitigating those inequalities through the design of systems that facilitate safety equitably across users. My work has been featured in popular press publications such as Scientific American, Business Insider, Newsweek, Schneier on Security, and CNET and has been recognized with a Distinguished Paper Award at USENIX Security and the John Karat Usable Privacy and Security Research Award.

I was previously appointed to the faculty of Princeton University and held appointments as a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems and the University of Zurich Institute for Communication Science and Media Research.
