Privacy | Fairness

All author ordering is strictly alphabetical. My research has a few threads:

  1. Fairness in Machine Learning (design of new algorithms and fairness notions, in the online, bandit, batch settings)
  2. The study of fundamental problems in differential privacy, with an emphasis on private learning
  3. Adaptive Data Analysis
