Ph.D. candidate at CMU Human Computer Interaction Institute
I am currently on the job market! I am looking for tenure-track faculty positions and industry researcher positions in the U.S. If you know of any openings that I might be a good fit for, please feel free to contact me.
My research interests lie at the intersection of HCI, privacy, and software engineering. I strive to address the increasing privacy issues in software systems by making it easier for developers to recognize, mitigate, and communicate privacy risks in the systems they program. I apply a human-centered lens to study the challenges developers face with regard to privacy, and I design, build, and evaluate IDE plugins to tackle these challenges by breaking down privacy responsibilities into lightweight annotating tasks, making privacy-enhancing considerations and actions part of the normal development process. My work has been recognized with an ACM CHI best paper honorable mention award and supported in part by a CMU CyLab Presidential Fellowship.
