I am a postdoctoral research associate at Carnegie Mellon University where I am honored to be co-advised by Giulia Fanti and Conrad Tucker. My research lies in the broader domain of human computer interactions. I investigate the behavioral and socio-cultural aspects of digital technology adoption and use, and human factors in security, with the aim of surfacing challenges and opportunities of such technologies on people and society, as well as to design appropriate technological solutions that are culturally relevant, safe, and usable. My research interests are driven by the desire to contribute to the formulation of policies and design of technological solutions that will foster sustainable, empowering, and inclusive techno-enabled societies and economies especially for understudied and marginalized populations.
Research Interests: Human-computer interaction, Usable security and privacy, ICT for Development (ICT4D), Inclusive innovations, Social computing, Human-centered cybersecurity.
