Emily Tseng, a doctoral student in Information Science based at Cornell Tech, has been awarded a Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship.
Advised by Nicola Dell, associate professor of Information Science, and Deborah Estrin, associate dean and Robert V. Tishman ’37 professor of computer science, Tseng designs and builds “socio-technical systems that help us care for each other,” according to her website. Her research includes large-scale computational analysis of the language of online therapy, justice-oriented design of caregiving systems in home health, and computer security for victims and survivors of intimate partner violence, among other interests.So-called privacy breeds evil: Narrative Justifications for Intimate Partner Surveillance in Online Forums,” which received a Best Paper Award at the ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW), held last month. Elsewhere, she is the lead author of “The Tools and Tactics Used in Intimate Partner Surveillance: An Analysis of Online Infidelity Forums”, which received the Distinguished Paper Award at USENIX Security 2020, and a coauthor on “Is my phone hacked?: Analyzing Clinical Computer Security Interventions with Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence,” which received a Best Paper Honorable Mention at CSCW 2019.
