Wang presents inclusive privacy research at HFES2020

Yang Wang, Associate Professor

Associate Professor Yang Wang presented his research at the 64th International Annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), a virtual event held from October 5-9.

Wang participated in the panel, "Humans and Technology for Inclusive Privacy and Security," which addressed "sociotechnical vulnerabilities that can and sometimes do arise from non-inclusive design of security and privacy." Panelists discussed value-sensitive design while focusing on potentially vulnerable populations, such as older adults, children in foster care, persons with disabilities, transgender individuals, and others who are not typically emphasized in general security and privacy concerns.

Wang conducts research focusing on usable privacy and security technologies, social computing, human-computer interaction, and explainable artificial intelligence. His research has received support from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Health and Human Services, Google, Alcatel-Lucent, and The Privacy Projects, and has appeared in news outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, and China Daily. Wang's honors include the IAPP SOUPS Privacy Award, an NSF CAREER Award, and a Top Privacy Paper for Policy Makers from the Future of Privacy Forum. He earned his PhD in information and computer science from the University of California, Irvine.
