Security and Privacy Research Lab

I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department and an adjunct assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Washington.

My research focuses on computer security and privacy. My interests are broad within that domain, but I am particularly excited about designing and building systems that address security and privacy challenges faced by end users of existing and emerging technologies. For example, my work has focused on computer security and privacy in the contexts of third-party web tracking, permission granting in modern operating systems (such as smartphones), emerging augmented reality platforms, and journalist-source communications.
