Building a Bridge between Humans and Cyber SecurityMy research focuses on human-centred security, a branch of Human Computer Interaction (HCI). I am interested in the interplay between users and security in the context of societal and industrial use. I want to work towards creating a natural easy yet secure interaction between humans and devices. My work has a strong development, experimental and deployment focus, testing solutions in practical situations. I have come up with a number of novel solutions to improve usability in a wide range of situations. I have also done fundamental work in understanding people's mental models of security in a variety of applications and contexts.
I have a wide range of other interests, including electronic voting, accessible technology, mobile phone design for elderly users, knowledge visualisation and the use of email in organisations.
