My research interests are in information privacy and computer and networks security. My current research focus is on user authentication, including authenticating users based on their behavioural or physiological biometrics. I also study the use of machine learning for securing or attacking devices and services. I have also worked on privacy-preserving technologies for location-based services and mobile applications, privacy-preserving location verification technologies, genomic privacy, and end-to-end voter-verifiable voting systems.

I am a member of the Cryptography, Security, and Privacy (CrySP) research group, the Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute (CPI), and the Systems and Networking Group.

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon in August 2005. Prior to that, I received an M.S. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon and a Dipl. Informatik-Ing. ETH from ETH Zürich (Curriculum Vitae).
