One of my primary research directions involves the economics of security and privacy. In this space, I explore both micro and behavioral economic aspects of security and privacy to design a robust cyber-space. In the past, I have designed efficient market models for cyber-insurance to improve network cyber-security. Currently I am focusing on designing privacy trading market models that achieve a win-win solution between various privacy stakeholders for the mobile apps and IoT business ecosystems. I am also conducting research on designing behavioral economic solutions to improve security in IoT-networked smart cities. The Cambridge Trust & Technoloy Initiative is an ideal platform for me to know about inter-disciplinary ideas and solutions related to my aforementioned research interests through its various events and publications.

About us

The Trust & Technology Initiative brings together and drives forward interdisciplinary research from Cambridge and beyond to explore the dynamics of trust and distrust in relation to internet technologies, society and power; to better inform trustworthy design and governance of next generation tech at the research and development stage; and to promote informed, critical, and engaging voices supporting individuals, communities and institutions in light of technology’s increasing pervasiveness in societies.
