I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Unversity of Vermont (UVM). Before that, I was a posdoctoral reseearcher in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and earned my Ph.D. in Information Studies from the College of Computing & Informatics at Drexel University.
My research is at the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI), usable privacy & security, privacy-enhancing technologies, health informatics, ubiquitous computing, and applied machine learning/artificial intelligence (ML/AI). Overall, I investigate both social and technical research topics to ensure the use of people’s personal information/data is appropriate, fair, and meaningful. See my Research page for more details.
I’m recruiting Ph.D. students and undergraduate/master’s research assistants. Please see the Students page for details.
