Reza Shahriari | PhD student

I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science advised by Eric Ragan at the University of Florida. My research focus lies at the dynamic intersection of Cybersecurity and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), a fascinating domain known as usable security. In my pursuit to bridge these disciplines, I am committed to enhancing the online experience for users by ensuring their security and privacy. Beyond my primary research area, I have a keen interest in AI/ML research and various user-centered topics.

The Indie (Interactive Data and Immersive Environments) Lab is a research lab within the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) at the University of Florida. The Indie Lab engages in human-centered research of interactive visualizations. Our research focuses on the design and evaluation of applications and techniques that support effective interaction and understanding of data, information, and virtual environments. Research areas include information visualization, virtual reality, 3D interaction, visual analytics, and educational games.
