I am interested mainly in cybersecurity education and workforce development; usable security and Privacy, secure block-chain education, security requirements engineering, and security decision-making. My work is in the intersection between security, privacy, software engineering, and Human-Computer Interaction. This research area is very interdisciplinary in nature combining theories and practices from areas like: psychology, decision science, computer security, information sciences, AI and others.
