Nick Merrill

I am a human-computer interaction (HCI) researcher working across design, security, and science & technology studies (STS). I identify potential harms of technology, and help others do the same.

I am a postdoc at the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC), where I direct the Daylight Security Research Lab (link forthcoming).

I received my PhD in 2018 from the UC Berkeley School of Information with committee John Chuang (adviser), Coye Cheshire and Alva Noƫ.

About me

I grew up in Los Angeles and now live in the East Bay, Ohlone territory. My father is a retired journalist & screenwriter who is much more interesting than I am.
