Mission Statement: The electronic storage and sharing of data about individuals and organizations underlies many computational applications, from banking to economic planning to the efficient implementation and delivery of health care. As this storage and sharing is often done automatically at speeds that prohibit direct human supervision, it is critical that these operations are performed in a manner that best resolves the frequently conflicting requirements of the privacy of the individuals described by the data, the needs of the users of the data, and the laws of the juristications in which these operations take place. The aim of our group is to develop theory, algorithms, and software solutions for dealing with these problems.
