Hello! I’m Michelle.

I am a graduate student in computer science at The University of Chicago; Blase Ur and Marshini Chetty are my co-advisors. My research interests lie at the intersection of privacy, policy, and human-computer interaction. I am especially interested in these topics as they relate to vulnerable and underrepresented populations. My goal is to use my research to give people the power to empower themselves.

Prior to starting my PhD, I received a Bachelors of Science in Cybersecurity from Kennesaw State University, where I was advised by Humayun Zafar.
