Ph.D. Student

I became a part of the Behavioral Security (BeSec) research group lead by Prof. Dr. Matthew Smith in January 2021. Even for some time before that, I have been intrigued by the challenges of addressing both usability and security & privacy and investigating human behavior in this scope. As such I am interested in topics at the intersection of usability, privacy, security and human (information) behavior, and investigating how different empirical methods can be applied in this domain.

Current Projects

  • Facilitating power analysis (sample size calculations) for researchers in developer centered security
  • Examining software developers’ folk models of software security
  • Investigating the coding process in qualitative analysis
