Richard Matovu

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Computer Science at Texas Tech University.

My research broadly focuses on behavioral biometrics on mobile and wearable devices, and exploring security and privacy threats on these devices. Currently, I utilize statistical, machine learning and deep learning techniques to design new behavioral authentication modalities, and study side-channel attacks exploiting motion sensors and power consumption of these devices.
