SRI Seminar Series: Kobbi Nissim, Georgetown University
March 22 @ 3:10 pm - 4:30 pm
University of Toronto’s Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society’s Seminar Series welcomes Kobbi Nissim, the McDevitt Chair of Computer Science at Georgetown University, and an affiliate professor at Georgetown Law. Nissim’s research works towards establishing rigorous practices for privacy in computation. He is particularly interested in intersection points between privacy and various disciplines within and outside computer science, including cryptography, machine learning, game theory, complexity theory, algorithmics, statistics, databases, and more recently privacy law and policy.
Nissim’s recognitions include the 2013 ACM PODS Test-of-Time Award, the 2017 Gödel Prize and 2016 Theory of Cryptography Test of Time Award for the paper that introduced differential privacy, the 2018 Theory of Cryptography Test of Time Award, the 2019 Caspar Bowden Award for Outstanding Research in Privacy Enhancing Technologies, and the 2021 Paris Kanellakis Award for “fundamental contributions to the development of differential privacy.”
