Pardis Emami-Naeini


I am currently a postdoctoral scholar in the School of Computer Science at University of Washington (UW), working with Prof. Yoshi Kohno and Prof. Franzi Roesner. Prior to UW, I received my PhD and MSc in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) under Prof. Lorrie Cranor and Prof. Yuvraj Agarwal in 2020 and 2018, respectively.

At CMU, I was working on devising tools and methods to better inform people's privacy and security decision-making in the world of Internet of Things (IoT). During the summer of 2019, I completed an awesome research internship at the Cryptography and Privacy Research group under Kristin Lauter and Kim Laine, and in Summer 2017, I completed another fantastic internship at Intel Corporation under Mohammad Reza Haghighat. Prior to CMU, I received my BSc in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran in 2015, where I was advised by Prof. Ali Movaghar.
