I advocate for including the human factor in the design of computer systems (human-centered design). My current research studies privacy and security technologies and interfaces directed at software developers. I apply qualitative and quantitative methods for evaluating, designing, and building such technologies that can assist software developers in building privacy-friendly and secure systems.

In my free time, I enjoy walks in the nature, travel to new places, watch movies, and hang out with family and friends. I spent about four years working in industry before starting my academic career (see my CV).
Informal chats: if you’re interested in my research and would like to chat, I’m happy to have a 20-minute Zoom call about anything related to my work, and I can often squeeze in a short call within 5-7 days of your email. Topics can be but are not limited to, what I do, future research avenues, possible collaborations, my experience in academia, and doing a degree in my research area (I don’t offer any positions)! I speak Farsi and English :)
