Sulagna Mukherjee

I am a PhD candidate at the Computer Science department of University of Southern California. I work with my advisor Prof. Barath Raghavan in the Networked Systems Laboratory.

My research interests are in Usable Security and Human-Computer Interactions with a focus on building systems whose design choices are informed through descriptive user oriented approaches.

I finished my undergraduate degree in 2015 majoring in Computer Science and Engineering at the Institute of Engineering and Management (IEM), Kolkata, India. In my undergrad, I worked on designing secure routing protocols for Mobile Ad-hoc Networks. Before joining USC, I worked for about 2 years at Ericsson Global Services India.
