Personal profile

Research Focus

I am broadly interested in human-computer interaction (HCI) with particular emphasis on usable, secure interfaces as it relates to embedded systems, IoT, and cybersecurity systems. In particular, my future research interests were shaped by the emerging trend towards mobile, PVAs, AI, virtual reality, and embedded networked systems. Cybersecurity industry observers now predict that consumer security and the usability of these inter-connected technologies will affect all levels of the society, ranging from business deals, self-driven vehicles to entertainment. My future research agenda focuses on the question of how to leverage these core technologies to continue the trend of improving system and security performances in regards to PVAs and other research problems.

 My past research explored enhancing the security and usability of mobile consumer technology. My thesis titled “Usable Secure Mobile Interfaces,” researched various ways to improve usability without sacrificing security. This involved creating a novel, user authentication system that exploits human semantic memory access patterns to improve memorability and uniform entropy of user passwords. It also explored other methods of user interaction based on biometrics to enhance user security and usability.
