About Me

I am a first-year PhD student with the GWUSEC Lab at George Washington University, where I am advised by Adam Aviv. I'm broadly interested in understanding how both physical and digital security devices are used by people with disabilities, and how they can be designed more universally. Other issues in usable security, such as authentication, password managers/policies, human factors in security and privacy adoption, and the growing prevalence of surveillance technology, are also things I'm interested in.
I recieved my undergraduate degree at Clark University, where I majored in Computer Science and Philosophy. During my undergrad, I conducted research with Peter Story on usable security and password managers.
