I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Vermont (UVM). Before joining UVM, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and earned my PhD degree from the College of Computing & Informatics at Drexel University.

My Research is at the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI), usable security & privacy, trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI), and health informatics. I investigate technical, societal, and interdisciplinary research questions towards building an ideal future where computing technologies can leverage people’s personal data in appropriate, ethical, and meaningful ways.
