My main research interests are human-computer interaction and usable privacy and security. I enjoy exploring topics that examine technology, people, how they interact, and how we can improve technology to advance society.
I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, with Dr. Elissa Redmiles' Safety & Society group. During my fellowship, I was involved in several projects, including projects that explored COVID19 exposure notification apps. In these studies, we looked at the decision-making process of installing the apps, and later how people were using them.
My doctoral studies took place at the Department of Industrial Engineering at Tel Aviv University, under the advisement of Prof. Eran Toch. I explored "User-Centered Privacy-by-Design", where we looked for ways to involve users in the process of designing privacy in information systems.
I received my MSc also under the advisement of Eran Toch. My Master's thesis focused on longitudinal privacy in online social networks (OSNs). We explored how sharing preferences correlate with the time passed since first publishing content in OSN. Quite different from my current fields of interest, I received my BSc in Life Sciences from Ben-Gurion University.
