About Me

I am an Associate Professor at Colgate University. Before coming to Colgate, I was a Computing Innovation Fellow at Cornell University, working with Johannes Gehrke. I completed my PhD at UMass Amherst in 2010 where my advisors were Gerome Miklau and David Jensen.

My research explores new technologies for privacy-preserving data analysis. The goal is to build software that provides rigorous privacy protection but at the same time allows researchers to analyze the data and discover aggregate trends. More broadly my interests include data management, data mining, social networks, and privacy. See my publications or my CV for more information.
