I'm a graduate student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. My research interests are in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) as it applies to Security applications. Specifically, I am interested in making access-control policy management a more tractable problem for end users. My thesis work looks at the impact of putting access-control permission information in close spatial proximity to the resource it protects.
I am a member of the Cylab Usable Privacy and Security (CUPS) lab and my adviser is Lorrie Cranor. I am also associated with the User Controllable Security and Privacy group and the IBM Open Collaborative Research Initiative.
I run The Tea Trolls Tea Time a weekly social event that lets Computer Science graduate students get to know each other better over a nice cup of tea. To satisfy my craftier side I weave, dance, and pretend to be a photographer. I also maintain a blog.
