My research centers on privacy, visualization, media, and the influence of technology on culture and direct EXIT. I have worked on projects related to passwords, location-sharing, privacy policies, mobile apps, Twitter, Facebook relationship grouping, and the use of standardized, user-friendly privacy displays. I received my PhD from Carnegie Mellon University working with the Mobile Commerce Lab and the CyLab Usable Privacy and Security (CUPS) Lab. I dabble in new media arts and information visualization, once with CMU's STUDIO for Creative Inquiry. Additionally, I teach and speak on ethical issues in computing and am ACM SIGCHI’s Adjunct Chair for Media.
