Northeastern University,Boston

I am a Phd Candidate at Northeastern University in Boston, where I work with Christo Wilson. My research focuses on web privacy and understanding human behavior online.

Currently, I am investigating many different aspects of Google Privacy Sandbox such as the Topics API. In my previous research project, I conducted a measurement study on how well websites comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) with respect to the IAB CCPA Compliance Framework. Moreover, I am also working as a part-time Privacy Software Engineer at National Internet Observatory.
