Ada Lerner

Assistant Professor of Computer Science


I'm an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Wellesley College. My research is in computer security and privacy, and my interests include usable security and privacy, the security and privacy needs of underprivileged groups, the design and implementation of new secure and privacy preserving systems, and measurements of the web and the Internet. I like to make measurements and talk to people to figure out what they need, then build the things they need.

I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Washington and my B.A. from Amherst College. At UW CSE, I had the pleasure to be advised by Franzi Roesner and Yoshi Kohno in the Security and Privacy Research Lab.
