I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Utah State University. Prior to joining to USU, I worked as a Research Scientist in Global Cybersecurity Institute (GCI) at Rochester Institute of Technology, and the Post-doctoral Fellow and Assistant Director of Humans and Technology Laboratory (HATLab) at Clemson University. I completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Texas at Arlington, winning Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award.
My research primarily focuses on Usable Security and Privacy, an interdisciplinary research area at the intersection of Cyber Security, Online Privacy, and Human-computer Interaction (HCI). I am particularly excited about investigating the security and privacy challenges faced by end users of digital technologies, and address those issues with developing novel techniques and systems.
I have founded the uSec: Usable Security Lab at Utah State University.
Openings at uSec Lab: I am looking for highly-motivated PhD students. Fully-funded GRA positions are available starting Spring 2021.
