I am a PhD student in EET at UNSW and Data61|CSIRO, Australia. With my PhD advisor Mohamed Ali (Dali) Kaafar, I am working on evaluation and design of usable privacy and security systems for the Web and mobile platforms. The common theme of my work is to extract salient features via characterizations and measurements and to use specialized machine learning algorithms to improve security and privacy features, while maintaining adequate usability, of the privacy and security schemes on the web and mobile platforms. My research interests include:

  • Tracking-free efficient Web browsing
  • Evaluation of privacy preserving systems on the Web
  • Analysis of security and privacy preserving systems in mobile platforms
  • Spammer detection on online social networks
  • Characterization of black-hat marketplaces
