My research has been directly funded by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC). These grants have supported undergraduate and graduate students, research and travel expenses, course buyouts, and summer salary, as approved by UMD. I have also received internal funding from UMD for research projects.
I have served as a paid consultant/advisor for academic projects funded by the National Science Foundation.
In 2021, I was a member of a large team that received a grant from Facebook to research better ways to predict trends in privacy regulation around the world.
In 2018, I received a Google Research Grant to develop privacy and security curriculum for elementary school students. This was part of Google’s Faculty Research Awards Program.
In 2015, I received an unrestricted gift from Facebook as part of their Faculty Research Grant program. Facebook had no influence in how the funds are used.
I have also served as a paid consultant for private parties on matters that are bound by non-disclosure agreements.
