Location: Lubbock, TX
Year in program: 7th
Research Interest: My primary interest is in cybersecurity, specifically in understanding how people detect and respond to cybersecurity risks such as phishing emails. I am also interested in the intersection between perceived humanness and technology. To what extent does one perceive another person as being human when they interact online? To what degree do people consider technologies like robots to be human and why?
Career Aspirations: I want to continue researching the human factors of cybersecurity and to someday run my own lab.
Fun fact: I consider New Mexico my home, but I have lived in 7 states and 2 countries so far.
Advice to younger students: There is no one correct way to go through school or become a competitive job candidate. Learn from the experience of others, but don't feel the pressure to replicate what they've done.
