I am a third-year PhD student at NYU in CSE. I am advised by Professor Keith Ross and Professor Torsten Suel. My research focuses on online privacy, social networks, usable privacy and security, and machine learning. As a member of CRISSP, I have explored users’ decisions in Facebook privacy settings as well as the eBay reputation system.
