Nicola DellAssistant ProfessorCornell Tech


Digital technologies, including mobile devices, cloud computing services, and social networks, play a nuanced role in intimate partner violence (IPV) settings, including domestic abuse, stalking, and surveillance of victims by abusive partners. In this talk I will survey our recent and ongoing work on understanding technology’s role in IPV, and improving technologies to increase privacy and safety for victims.
