Robbie joined ACENET in May of 2020, just prior to receiving his master's degree. As a researcher, his areas of specialization are privacy and security, authentication, and usability. He is interested in better securing vulnerable, under-resourced, and novice users. His thesis work and associated research addressed the promise of communicating the problem of password reuse via password managers, in an explicitly cross-site context. Robbie's past work with industry partners and government has been tied to network security, and the development of adaptive intrusion detection systems.
