I am currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Tennessee studying computer science with a focus in cybersecurity. My interests are in mathematics, software and web security, and how culture impacts cybersecurity. My current research is on input modalities and password managers. In this research, I am looking at what types of input modalities are used for password creation and entry, what frustrations come with different input modalities, and what can be done to modify password managers to allow for a smoother user experience when entering a password generated by a password manager on a device that does not allow password managers.
