ABOUT ME

I am a Ph.D. student advised by Dr. Eran Toch at Tel Aviv University. 

 

My primary research areas are human-computer interaction, usable security and privacy, and machine learning.

 

Currently, I am working on my Ph.D.  The goal of my doctoral research is to empower older adults and help them to make safe mobile security and privacy decisions by leveraging their social connections assistance. First, I understand older adults' challenges and interact with other people to receive support in mobile safety. Then, I designed, developed, and evaluated mobile applications that will be usable, empowering, and teaching for older adults.

I received my MSc also under the advisement of Eran Toch. My Master's thesis focused on influencing users' privacy behavior in online social networks. I built a custom Facebook application to collect feedback from users regarding their intention to adopt privacy practices from different sources: authoritative organizations and friends with varying tie strength.
