Alena Naiakshina

As a researcher, I have been a part of the research group BeSec (Behavioral Security), coordinated by Prof. Dr. Matthew Smith, since January 2017. Through the past years, I have had a variety of experiences with end users, but my current work concentrates on software developers. In particular, I am conducting usability studies with developers to improve the security of software.

While the usable security community has ample experience and best-practice knowledge concerning the design of end-user studies, such knowledge is still lacking for developer studies. Therefore, I address two main issues within my work: software developers’ security behavior and study design of developer security studies.
