Senior Usable Security Expert, PhD / Security Lab

Mads Schaarup Andersen

In a world where we – actively or passively – share more and more data about ourselves, security and privacy become increasingly important.

Mads has done research in usable privacy and security and has expert knowledge of both fields. He is driven by a need to develop user-centred solutions that are accessible by all users even though the underlying system may be highly complex. To achieve this, users must be involved throughout the design and development process.

Mads has an MSc in software engineering from Aalborg University. He wrote his PhD at Aarhus University and did a postdoc at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA.
