In this talk I will present an overview of my past research on online tracking, anonymous communications and dark (design) patterns.

The talk will cover empirical measurements of advanced tracking mechanisms such as browser fingerprinting; traffic analysis in Tor anonymous communications network; and security and privacy risks posed by IoT devices and mobile apps. I will also present my research on identifying dark patterns at scale, and I will conclude by discussing potential future work and collaboration opportunities.
