This is a general topic that would study aspects related to biases that humans have regarding privacy. Many interesting things can be done here, such as studying users and their privacy preferences, focusing on a specific type of application in IoT, maybe looking at cognitive models, and focusing on biases, of course. This is a topic at the intersection of privacy and psychology.

Conservation efforts and management decisions on the living environment of our planet often rely on imperfect statistical models. Therefore, managers have to brace for the uncertainty associated with the model and study system i.e., set their acceptable risk level, to make some decisions. However, risk estimates themselves can often be biased. In a recent paper published in Nature communications we demonstrate that one can back-calculate the correct value of risk by combining data fitting with an extensive simulation–estimation procedure.
