Research Focus

Cyber deception, use, abuse and misuse of information technology



My research focuses on the cybersecurity issues particularly how and why people fall victim to online cyber crimes.

I have written and presented over three-dozen articles on technology diffusion, online deception, and consumer psychology in leading communication and information systems journals and conferences.

An overview of my research on online deception and cybersecurity can be found in the Op-Eds I have penned in CNN (1), the World Economic Forum, The Conversation, and CNN (2)
