Miranda Wei


Hi there! I’m Miranda.

I’m a recent grad from the University of Chicago, and currently working as a researcher at UChicago’s SUPERgroup. My research focuses on the usability of computer security and privacy. I’m especially interested in how average users imagine, interact with, and are influenced by technology. Generally, I love asking people about what they love, what they hate, and anything else they feel strongly about.

I was born and raised in Chicago (unless you’re from the city, in which case I was born and raised in the suburbs). I studied political science and computer science during my undergraduate degree, and graduated in June 2017.
