We conduct research with an end goal of improving the usability of privacy mechanisms so that people are better able to protect their sensitive information online.
- Data guardians - understanding the experiences, perceptions, and challenges of professionals tasked with protecting other people's personal data in their daily work
- Differential privacy - created a video to explain the concept and utility of differential privacy in easy-to-understand terms
- Non-breach privacy events - collected and characterized a corpus of “non-breach privacy events," which are defined as incidents in which the action or inaction by an individual or organization resulted in a perceived privacy violation, but where the action did not involve the theft of data as the result of a computer intrusion
- Preserving privacy while authenticating to third-party websites – investigated how privacy dialog box message formats impact a user’s choice to continue to a third-party website and use their social networking site credentials for authentication
