Pardis Emami-Naeini


I am currently a 4th year PhD student in School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, PA. I am honored to be co-advised by Prof. Lorrie Cranor and Prof. Yuvraj Agarwal.

Here at CMU, I am working on devising tools and methods to better inform people's privacy and security decision-making in the world of Internet of Things (IoT). My current projects are on developing updateable privacy and security label for smart devices to help consumers make more informed IoT-related purchase decisions.

Prior to CMU, I got my BS of Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Iran (2015), where I was advised by Prof. Ali Movaghar.
