Pardis Emami-Naeini

I am currently a 4th year PhD student in School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, PA. I am honored to be advised by Prof. Lorrie Cranor. Here at CMU, I am all about Internet of Things and the myth of privacy and security!

Prior to CMU, I got my BS of Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Iran (2015), where I was advised by Prof. Ali Movaghar.
