Sascha Fahl investigates how the usability of IT systems impacts on IT security. He is a professor at Leibniz Universität Hannover, where he directs the Institute of Information Security.

He previously worked with the Chrome Security Team at Google and led an independent junior research group at Saarland University. Research into usability covers not just questions in computer science, but also psychological and sociological factors. In his research on IT security, Fahl links these disciplines through the use of empirical methods.
