Director of Information Security Awareness
Visa Inc. 

I am the Director of Information Security Awareness at Visa Inc. My research foci are two. First, I examine individual security and privacy decisions online under the broad rubric of risk decisions, specifically risk perception and risk compensation. Second, I investigate cybercrime and resulting victimization from the distinct lenses of computer science, economics, criminology, and social psychology. In addition I am also interested in economics of security and privacy, assisted living technologies, eGovernance, and information ethics. Research page details individual projects, i.e. (1) Risk Communication, (2) Cybercrime Science, and (3) The Internet Commons

I have recently been appointed as the Associate Editor for the new journal for Human Computation. This is an interdisciplinary peer reviewed open access journal, with no hidden fees. The call for papers for the first issue is out. If you have questions about the journal or the submission process please feel free to email me. 

In my free time I try to keep up on Indian Cyberlaws and their impact on Intellectual Freedom. Here is a dated talk that I gave on the subject. I also like composing; my music is available for download here.
