I am a professor of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech's College of Computing (a top 10 department in computer science). Prior to that, I got my Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University (from the #1 ranked computer science department in the country). I have previously worked as a researcher and technologist at Facebook, Google and Microsoft, as well as at a small technology start-up company.
I direct the GT SPUD (Security, Privacy, Usability and Design) Lab. Our work, at the intersection of HCI, data science and cybersecurity, is oriented around answering two questions: (i) How can we design systems that encourage better cybersecurity and privacy behaviors? (ii) How can we design systems that shift power away from surveillance institutions and back into the hands of end-users?
I've given talks on my research both USENIX Enigma and RSA — both premier venues for cybersecurity professionals — in addition to many top universities: e.g., Stanford, Princeton...
