Hi! My name is Cara Scott and I am a senior studying computer science with a minor in cybersecurity. I’m originally from Nashville and I love being a Volunteer.

My current research looks at how people interact with password managers and 2-factor authentication especially in regards to sharing accounts. Multiple users for one account, whether it be a family Netflix account or a bank account shared between spouses, is common in normal account usage. I want to see if we are creating security tools that support this phenomenon.

Overall, I’m interested in exploring where security and usability meet and how we can improve tools and education to better assist that interaction.
