Recent Ph.D. graduate Franziska (Franzi) Roesner returns to the classroom in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering this fall as an assistant professor.
Her research focuses broadly on computer security and privacy, with perspectives from both computer system design and human-computer interaction. She examines security and privacy challenges posed by existing and emerging technologies such as third-party tracking on the Internet and vulnerabilities in smartphones and augmented-reality platforms like Google Glass and Xbox Kinect.
Franzi received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and Microsoft Research Fellowship as well as an award from IEEE for a 2012 paper on security and privacy.
