Post Doctoral Research Associate
Shafiqul is developing interfaces to prevent thermal images attacks using computer vision techniques. He completed his PhD in Computer Science and Engineering with research interests in signal and image processing, machine and deep learning. His PhD dissertation is about applying advanced machine learning techniques for diabetes management and prediction. He developed a machine learning framework that can predict whether a subject will develop diabetes within the next 7-8 years or not. During his MS studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering, he worked on artifact removal from EEG signals for ambulatory epileptic seizure prediction applications. Both of his works have been published in IEEE sensor and biomedical signal processing journals.
keywords: computer vision, machine learning, EEG
Pejman Saeghe is an early career Research Associate in Human-Computer Interaction in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK. His current research focuses on augmented, virtual, and extended reality (XR) privacy/security, and safety in social virtual environments. He has a background in immersive XR multimedia as part of his PhD at the University of Manchester in collaboration with the British Broadcasting Corporation Research and Development (BBC R&D). His publications can be found on his webpage below.

The objective of Florian’s PhD is to research the suitability of Virtual Reality (VR) as a test bed for usability and security evaluations.
keywords: HCI, Virtual Reality, Usable Security
My research combines HCI and usable security. In particular, I focus on the use of eye gaze to enhance security mechanisms, including and not limited to gaze behavior in security-related situations and personal identification.
keywords: HCI, Eye Tracking, Usable Security
PhD Student, started Jan 2020
keywords: Thermal Imaging, Machine Learning, Security
My research is inspired by the convergence of Security & Privacy and Humans. I specifically focus on understanding and mitigating shoulder surfing – a privacy invasion found all around us.
keywords: Shoulder Surfing, Usable Security, HCI
PhD Student in the SOCIAL CDT programme, started Oct 2020
Robin’s doctoral project focuses on the study of human behaviour around Social drones in immersive virtual reality (VR). He aims to address three questions Humans - How do they behave around drones ? Drones - How to make them social ? And Virtual Reality - What are the limits and capabilities of using VR as an approach for researching Human-Drone Interaction?
keywords: Human-Drone Interaction, Social Drones, Human-Robot Interaction
PhD student, started July 2021
Melvin’s research is based on identifying and communicating security & privacy risks to a user within mixed reality. Looking specifically at how mixed reality can be leveraged, to communicate effectively when a users data is being collected or if a security risk is present.
keywords: Privacy, Virtual Reality, Usable Security
PhD student (secondary supervisor), started Oct 2018.
keywords: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality,
Cristina’s research focuses on children and adolescents’ privacy and emotional safety with virtual reality (VR). One of the aims is to create a framework for parents to protect them and moderate the social VR experience without neglecting children and adolescents’ expression and self-development.
keywords: Virtual Reality, HCI, children and adolescents’ privacy
Recent advances in mobile devices led them to seamlessly support eye tracking. This brings a lot of advantages to interaction. However, eye movements also reveal sensitive attributes about the user. My research aims to investigate the privacy risks of eye tracking on handheld mobile devices and design protective measures using AR based solutions.
keywords: Privacy, Human centered security, Augmented reality.
PhD Student, started Jan 2022
keywords: Gaze Interaction, Mobile Devices, Eye Tracking
I am a postdoctoral researcher and head of the HCI group at Telecooperation Lab led by Max Mühlhäuser. My current research interests include Mixed Reality, Haptics, and Fabrication. I have a background in computer science, psychology, and visual computing. I explored 3D-printed interfaces in my PhD (supervised by Max Mühlhäuser and Jürgen Steimle). If you are interested, please check my recent publications or contact me.
keywords: Mixed Reality, Haptics, Fabrication
Visiting researcher - PhD student in Psychology at the Technical University of Darmstadt
Coming from psychology, Alina is looking at the human factors in privacy. Her research deals with user perceptions (e.g., personal privacy assistants) and the perspective of privacy responsible parties (e.g., website owners).
