Contribute to one of the following research projects:
“Secure and Verifiable Test and Assessment Systems”. The project aims at defining threat models and security properties for electronic testing & assessment systems, i.e., e-T&AS (privacy, verifiability, auditability, accountability, usability, etc.). It will extend existing tools for formal analysis, develop run-time monitoring to detect cheating and enhance accountability, and develop and implement new usable secure protocols. Your research will concern the design, analyses, validation and implementation of security protocols enhancing the privacy and reliability of online exams
"Online deceptive patterns". This project aims at functionally characterizing manipulation and deception in online interactions (I.e., dark patterns), by developing guidelines, design principles, and tools that can be used to (semi)-automatically recognize and classify dark patterns. The project is highly interdisciplinary, as it explores online manipulation through an holistic approach combining computer science, psychology, engineering, law and ethics. You will develop formal models of trust and distrust in online interactions and design tools to assess them.
