My research focus in usable security and privacy. My work aims to ellucidate and address users' security and privacy concerns. In particular, I recognize that many perspectives have been historically left out of conversations about security and privacy, and I seek to correct for this through my work. I recently joined the University of Illinois as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science. I am building my lab (interested potential PhD students are welcome to reach out). Until July 2021, I was a postdoctoral researcher working with Lujo Bauer in the CyLab at Carnegie Mellon University. I earned my Phd in June 2019 from the University of Washington in Computer Science & Engineering. During my PhD, I was advised by Tadayoshi Kohno in the Security & Privacy Research Lab and Alexis Hiniker from the UW Information School.
Hi there! My name is Chris Fletcher (a.k.a. 'Fletch', 'C Fletch', 'C F'). I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois--Urbana Champaign (CS Department). I grew up in Southern California and moved to Berkeley in 2006 to pursue a Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I graduated with a Ph.D. (also in EECS) at MIT in 2016, and spent a year (Fall 2016-17) as a Research Post-doc at Nvidia.
I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and (by courtesy) the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I run the Data Driven Design Group, where we research machine learning for effective user experiences and effective user experiences for machine learning. I also serve as the Chief Research Scientist at UserTesting, where my team and I are building solutions for bridging quantitative and qualitative experience testing. I received my BS and PhD from the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University. Based on my dissertation work, I co-founded Apropose, Inc., a data-driven design startup backed by Andreessen Horowitz and New Enterprise Associates.
