Broadly, we study the intersection of computer security and privacy with human factors. We are particularly interested in investigating end users, administrators, developers and designers of computer systems and their interdependencies with computer security and privacy mechanisms.

Our research involves large-scale analyses of the Internet and software repositories to understand the huge challenges humans face when interacting with computer security and privacy mechanisms.

To understand root causes, evaluate existing mechanisms and investigate novel ideas, we conduct all kinds of user studies with end users, administrators, and developers of these systems.
