Seeking a postdoctoral fellow for an NSF-funded research project on privacy, trust and power dynamics related to Smart Homes - households enabled with internet-of-things devices and systems. The distinct power dynamics, social conditions and intimate situations of the home create privacy and surveillance implications in the Smart Home that depend on the types of roles, relationships, and residences entailed in them. Overall, the goal of the grant is to understand these distinct implications, and to identify ways to enable people to live in a trustworthy Smart Home, one whose security they can understand and manage, and with strong mechanisms to protect their privacy. A particular focus includes digital health technologies and use of Smart devices in the home for health-related activities. The postdoc will work under the supervision of Professor Denise Anthony and sit in the department of Health Management & Policy at the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.
