Lecture: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 13 | 10-11 a.m. | 405 Soda Hall
This dissertation talk explores how to improve both the utility of shared data and how well privacy is maintained with strategically designed tools and methods. We propose and evaluate these tools and strategies for collaborative data management to help navigate tensions between open data and data privacy in the context of international development engineering projects.

Over 400 million people live without access to basic communication services, largely in rural areas. Community-based networks, and particularly community cellular networks, can sustainably support services even in these extremely rural areas where commercial network operators cannot.
In this talk, I will identify key challenges these community cellular networks face for reaching scale, and... More >

We are finally at a point where we have the knowledge and resources to make safety-critical robotic systems a reality. Deploying such systems in the real world, however, requires addressing problems in detecting unsafe environments, reasoning with unknown or learnt components and providing strong safety assurances. In this talk, I will address two specific challenges in this domain: (1)... More >

In recent years, growing data volumes and more sophisticated computational procedures have greatly increased the demand for computational power. Machine learning and artificial intelligence applications, for example, are notorious for their computational requirements. At the same time, Moores law is ending and processor speeds are stalling. As a result, distributed computing and the cloud have... More >

Silicon photonics is a rapidly maturing platform for optical communication and sensing. As systems leveraging silicon photonics have grown in size and complexity, so too has the demand for high performance silicon photonics components. In order to meet these demands, we propose a hierarchical approach to design and optimization of silicon photonics components. Our approach applies simple physical... More >
