Franziska Roesner

I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University of Washington.

My research focuses on computer security and privacy. My interests are broad within that domain, but I am particularly excited about designing and building systems that address security and privacy challenges faced by end users of existing and emerging technologies. For example, my work has focused on computer security and privacy in the contexts of third-party web tracking, permission granting in modern operating systems (such as smartphones), secure embedded user interfaces, and most recently, emerging augmented reality platforms.
