Prospective Students

I am looking for high calibre PhD students in Information Security, primarily those interested in human factors, risk perceptions, decision making as well as the evaluation of the underlying psychological models that drive human computer interaction. I do not generally consider topics outside of Information Security, but if in doubt then do please contact me. Especially if your interests include social media, privacy or usability.
