Director, Daylight Security Research Lab
Nick Merrill directs the Daylight Lab at the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity. His work is built on a simple observation: that security is difficult to practice in part because it’s difficult to understand. His lab’s work shifts the way people understand and identify the harms of technology—and expands the populations able to do so. By generating novel tools, practices, and representations, we make “security” specific and actionable to those who need it. Nick has published over a dozen articles in peer-reviewed venues such as ACM CHI, DIS and CSCW.
