I am Mariam Hassib, a senior researcher in Human-Centered AI  in Fortiss Research Institute, Munich. My research interests lie at the intersection of HCI, AI, and Usable Security and Privacy.  I enjoy studying human behavior, conducting studies in various settings, interviewing people and designing with people. Prior to joining Fortiss, I was a lead researcher (Postdoc) in the Usable Security and Privacy Group (CODE) at the Bundeswehr University in Munich.

I obtained my PhD degree from the University of Munich (LMU) in 2018 where I worked on developing novel communication and interactive technologies leveraging a myriad of Physiological sensors such as heart rate, EEG, and eye tracking. 

Apart from academia, I gained professional experience through working as a UX researcher in two startups, did my bachelor thesis in Daimler AG (Ulm), and interned in Sony STC (Stuttgart).

Do you have a project idea (Bachelor, Masters, PhD, or industry?) please feel free to reach out!
