Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • The Internet
  • Computer security
  • Artificial intelligence

Alexander De Luca spends much of his time researching Authentication, Computer security, Password, Usability and Android. Alexander De Luca mostly deals with Shoulder surfing in his studies of Authentication. Many of his research projects under Computer security are closely connected to Process and Work with Process and Work, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

His Password research incorporates themes from Focus and Human–computer interaction. The various areas that Alexander De Luca examines in his Human–computer interaction study include Locative media and Mobile device. His work on Lock screen expands to the thematically related Usability.

His most cited work include:

  • Touch me once and i know it's you!: implicit authentication based on touch screen patterns (413 citations)
  • It's a Hard Lock Life: A Field Study of Smartphone (Un)Locking Behavior and Risk Perception (160 citations)
  • Patterns in the wild: a field study of the usability of pattern and pin-based authentication on mobile devices (112 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Computer security, Authentication, Mobile device, Human–computer interaction and Usability. His study in the field of Chip Authentication Program also crosses realms of Data security. The study incorporates disciplines such as Password and Input method in addition to Authentication.

He studied Mobile device and Mobile search that intersect with Mobile computing and Mobile technology. His study in the field of User interface design and Ubiquitous computing is also linked to topics like Mobile phone and Information system. He performs multidisciplinary study in the fields of Usability and Android via his papers.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Computer security (41.98%)
  • Authentication (29.63%)
  • Mobile device (27.16%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2019)?

  • Internet privacy (24.69%)
  • World Wide Web (18.52%)
  • Computer security (41.98%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Internet privacy, World Wide Web, Computer security, Biometrics and Usability are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Internet privacy study are interwoven with issues in Security analysis and Instant messaging. His work in the fields of Social network overlaps with other areas such as Expiration, Selection, Peer influence and Sample.

Computer security and Overhead are commonly linked in his work. His research integrates issues of Authentication and Human–computer interaction in his study of Biometrics. The Usability study which covers Lock screen that intersects with Password.

Between 2015 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • The Anatomy of Smartphone Unlocking: A Field Study of Android Lock Screens (75 citations)
  • Personality traits predict smartphone usage. (48 citations)
  • Keep on Lockin' in the Free World: A Multi-National Comparison of Smartphone Locking (29 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • The Internet
  • Artificial intelligence
  • World Wide Web

His primary scientific interests are in Lock screen, Computer security, Internet privacy, Social psychology and Duration. His study in Lock screen is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Usability and Biometrics. A majority of his Computer security research is a blend of other scientific areas, such as Business, Range and Multi national.

His Internet privacy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Instant messenger and Mobile instant messaging. His Social psychology study spans across into subjects like Degree and Big Five personality traits.
