Who I Am
I am a Postdoctoral Associate with the Institute for Software Research in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. My current research is in usable privacy and security, and I am affiliated with the Mobile Commerce Lab. My supervisor is Norman Sadeh.
I received my Ph.D. (2011) and M.S. (2008) from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, where I worked on several projects in artificial intelligence with the ALMECOM Lab. My supervisor there was Donald Perlis.
I received my undergraduate education at Virginia Tech, where in 2005 I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science, a B.S. in Mathematics, and a B.A. in Philosophy. My honors theses were on topics in bioinformatics, graph theory, and philosophy of artificial intelligence, respectively.
