NSF Funding for International Research on Mobile Privacy

I was recently awarded a unique NSF EAGER grant in collaboration with the Netherland’s grant funding agency. The call from the NSF wanted social science research by collaborators in the U.S. and Netherlands. Our project explores how mobile users develop mental models around privacy and information sharing when using apps ranging from messaging services to fitness trackers and personal digital assistants like Siri and Alexa.

The full team includes myself and Michael Zimmer (UW-Milwaukee) on the U.S. side and Jason Pridmore and Dan Trottier at Erasmus University in the Netherlands.
