I am a Senior Researcher in the department. My research focuses on enabling better control of personal information on connected devices, such as smartphone devices or Internet of Things devices. For this, I take a human-centric approach, focusing on understanding real users' needs, in order to design technologies that can make a real impact. Currently, I am leading the KOALA project, to investigate children's and parents' awareness of privacy risks related to the use of tablet computers or connected toys. For this, I work closely with schools, families, as well as organisations that have young children's best interests in mind.
