Research interests

Researcher in cyber security and privacy.Leveraging on my technical and socio-technical research methods I aim to understand how users perceive and use technology with regards to security and privacy. I am particularly interested in three areas, (1) usability, (2) privacy, and (3) trust.

My research on usability focuses on understanding the usability practices and the challenges faced by users and operators alike when enforcing security and privacy measures. I aim to understand the challenges and propose viable solutions.

Regarding privacy, I am interested in understanding users’ perceptions and norms around the use of smartphones and smarthome devices.

My research on trust focuses on understanding the factors that engender trust in various applications such as peer to peer electricity trading platforms.
