I am a Professor in the School of Information at UC Berkeley, with an affiliate appointment in EECS. My research interests are in bio-sensory computing (brainwave authentication, human factors in wearable computing) and information economics and policy (network economics, peer production, security and privacy).
I co-direct the BioSENSE Lab, a multidisciplinary research team studying the application potentials and stewardship challenges of ubiquitous bio-sensing technologies.
I received my Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, and graduated summa cum laude in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California.
