Privacy

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.

Current/recent projects:

  • 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
