Anna Squicciarini

Fulbright Cyber Security Scholar Award, King's College London - Computer & Info Systems Security

Anna will return to London after a successful sabbatical in 2017, to pursue new research ideas and new life adventures with her family. Her Fulbright project will explore mental models related to cloud security and documents sharing. She will develop user centred studies and semiautomated mechanisms to help users protect content that is shared and co-managed via online remote cloud providers. Her time at King’s College London will allow her to interact with top researchers in the field, as well as fostering existing collaborators. Anna is an Associate Professor at the Pennsylvania State University, where she heads the Cybersecurity Area group. Her research focus is on privacy, access control and security topics in general. She has over 100 publications in the field and her work is supported by several funding bodies. Her Fulbright will give Anna the opportunity to share her work internationally and develop new approaches to content protection. Plus, Anna’s 11-year-old daughter will return to the British school she attended in 2016.
