About Me

I'm a researcher in the Usable Security and Privacy Group at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), a laboratory affiliated with the University of California at Berkeley. My research interests include measuring the privacy risks of everyday consumer products, user perceptions of security issues, and the online advertising ecosystem. In my free time, I enjoy board games, hiking, and serenading Berkeley with my ukulele from the roof of ICSI's offices.
