Research Interests

A Senior Researcher and Lecturer in the area of Data Privacy and Security in the Internet Technologies and Systems Group, at the Hasso-Plattner-Institute, Germany. I hold a PhD in Computer Science from Queen's University, Canada. My research involves designing and analysing secure and privacy preserving data sharing algorithms, the implementation/testing of these algorithms, and studying human mindsets/perceptions towards security/privacy solutions.



A list of my publications can be found here, Google Scholar, or on dblp.
