About

I advocate for including the human factor in the design process of privacy and security technologies. My current research looks at privacy and security technologies and interfaces directed at software developers. I apply qualitative and quantitative methods for evaluating, designing, and building such technologies and interfaces that can assist software developers in building private and secure systems.

Personal

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).
