Welcome to my homepage! My name is Mohamed Khamis, I research in Human-Computer Interaction. I am a last year PhD student at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU). My PhD is supervised by Florian Alt from the Media Informatics Group in Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich (LMU), and Andreas Bulling from the Perceptual User Interfaces Group in Max Planck Institute for Informatics.
I worked in a diversity of topics, however my main research interests are at the crossroads of Ubiquitous Systems, and Privacy and Usable Security. My work focuses on: (1) creating ubiquitous systems that protect the user's privacy (e.g., authentication schemes and privacy protection methods), and (2) understanding the threats to user privacy that are imposed by ubiquitous technologies (e.g., thermal cameras, mobile devices, and depth cameras). I refer to this area as Privacy-Respectful Ubiquitous Systems.
