I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Skidmore College and I run the Smart Devices lab.
I was recently in the news, where I discussed what contact tracing entails, privacy concerns and how mobile technology can assist contact tracers during the COVID-19 pandemic with various news outlets and publications. – April, May 2020

My research interests include usable security and privacy, mobile and wearable computing, Internet of Things, mHealth applications and wireless networks. My research has given me the opportunity to collaborate with some excellent faculty and students in Psychology, Sociology, Physics and Dance departments at Skidmore and Union College.
Before coming to Skidmore College, I worked as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Amherst College. I received my Ph.D and M.S. in Computer Science from Dartmouth College, where my advisor was David Kotz. During my Ph.D., I also did an internship at the Intel Security and Privacy Lab in Hillsboro, Oregon.
