A little about me

Hi there! I’m Yue. I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of British Columbia (UBC), where I work under the supervision of Pro. Konstanin Beznosov. My research interests are broadly in data security and privacy, with a focus on usable security and privacy.

My current research focuses on security, privacy, and UX issues in information tracking solutions that are being used during the pandemic, such as contact-tracing apps, digital travel permits, and visitor check-in solution. My recent work regarding this space investigates the factors that influence people’s adoption intentions of multiple information-tracking solutions.

My previous work in usable security and privacy focuses on identifying users’ security and privacy concerns about sharing personal information through various technologies, such as via shared smart home devices and shared accounts.
