I am an associate professor in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering.
My research focuses on computer security and privacy. My interests are broad within that domain, identifying and addressing security and privacy challenges faced by end users of existing and emerging technologies.
I am also an adjunct associate professor in the Information School, the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department and the Human Centered Design and Engineering Department at the University of Washington. I am also affiliated with the UW Tech Policy Lab, the UW Reality Lab, and the Center for an Informed Public.
I am currently the program co-chair for USENIX Security 2020, and I am on the USENIX Enigma steering committee (after co-chairing in 2018 and 2019).
I am the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award (2017), an Emerging Leader Alumni Award from the UT Austin College of Natural Sciences (2017), an MIT Technology Review Innovators Under 35 Award (2017), and a Google Security and Privacy Research Award (2017).
Some directions I'm particularly interested in at the moment (but not an exhaustive list!) include:
Security and privacy for emerging technologies, such as augmented reality (AR) and smart homes
Understanding and designing for the security needs of end users, such as journalists
Studying privacy and security in the wild, such as by measuring third-party web tracking
Studying and combating technology-enabled mis/disinformation online
