Short bio and CV (pdf, last updated: June 2021)
I'm an ADK 46er and an avid hiker. See a list I compiled of good hikes, trails, and XC ski areas within two hours of Skidmore. I'm also a trained Indian classical dancer. For more info, see my personal page.
I direct the Skidmore Smart Devices Lab, where creative thought meets technology. We focus on problems on usability and usable security and privacy in the field of mobile and wearable computing, Internet of Things, mHealth applications and wireless networks. My research has given me the opportunity to collaborate with excellent faculty and students in Psychology, Sociology, Physics and Dance departments at Skidmore and Union College.
I teach introductory, and systems courses in computer science.
You do not have to be a CS major to do research with me. I have worked with several first year students with minimal programming experience, as well as students who have never taken a CS course before! If you are interested in doing research with me, see FAQ!
