Dr Marvin Ramokapane

My research interests lie in computer security and privacy, with an emphasis on human factors. I am currently focusing on two areas, (1) cloud deletion, and (2) trust in blockchain technology. My research on cloud deletion focuses on the challenges and opportunities that exist in offering assured deletion. I aim to understand the challenges cloud service providers face in their attempt to assure deletion and the impact that has on cloud users’ deletion practices. With regards to trust, I am interested in understanding the factors that engender trust in blockchain applications especially in peer to peer electricity trading platforms.
