Department of Computer Science
I am a post doctoral researcher in the Department of Computer Science at Drexel University. My appointment is with the Privacy and Security Automation Laboratory (PSAL). 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 Analytics
, (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.
I also have the pleasure of serving as one of the new deputy editors for ACM Computers & Society Magazine.
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
