Maija Poikela

Maija Poikela received her PhD on the topic of perceived privacy in location-based systems from the Quality and Usability Lab at TU Berlin, Germany in 2019. She obtained her M.Sc. degree in Signal Processing and Communications Engineering from Tampere University of Technology, Finland, in 2010, focusing on subjective quality and the human perception of stereoscopic videos. Her research focuses on usable privacy – the intersection of human users and technology – assessing the challenges posed by collection, processing, and distribution of personal information. She conducts empirical research in which she assesses the effect of various factors such as context on privacy perception and on privacy-related behaviour. From August 2019 she works on the topics of usable privacy and security at the department of Secure Systems Engineering at the Fraunhofer-Institut für Angewandte und Integrierte Sicherheit (AISEC).

In today’s technological world, there is an enormous amount of personal digital data being collected using various technologies. This data is either explicitly provided by the users through social media posts, searches and other services, or collected automatically, usually unnoticed by the users. Location data is a piece of information that is one of the most sensitive types of data, as from seemingly anonymous location data, a lot can be inferred. This talk discusses location privacy from the users’ perspective, and gives a short introduction to what is involved in conducting research around this topic.
