We study the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI), security engineering, and mobile computing.
Currently, our research focuses on the science of security, the security and usability of authentication methods, and the psychological factors contributing to users' security decisions. Our interdisciplinary approach combines research and expertise from multiple disciplines (e.g. psychology, statistics, electrical engineering, and computer science) to make novel contributions to the HCI and security engineering fields.
