Research

I am a human-centered computing researcher, with strong interdisciplinary expertise in human-computer interaction (HCI), usable privacy & security, privacy-enhancing technologies, health informatics, ubiquitous computing, and applied machine learning/artificial intelligence (ML/AI). I investigate both social and technical research topics to ensure the use of people’s personal information/data is appropriate, fair, and meaningful, particularly by emerging computing and information technologies.

Specifically, I examine how emerging computing and information technologies impact people’s personal information (e.g., the Internet of Things, wearable health trackers), from which I identify underlying socio-technical challenges related to people’s personal information (e.g., data privacy transparency, personal privacy management, ethics around ML/AI-enabled systems). Built on my research findings, I also design and develop proof-of-concept systems to address these challenges (e.g., IoTA Assistant app, IoT Portal, Opt-Out Easy). The ultimate goal of my research is to improve people’s personal wellbeing and to achieve greater social good through computing and information technologies.
